I understand. We do not do much graphics except for a few generic ones. So I 
would skip the graphics category.

Hi Kirshna, 

I notice one item that is lacking - graphics. 

Graphics can range from simply importing an existing file to creating a complex 
3D drawing from scratch.  Thus the estimate for each graphic can range from 
minutes to days. 

Best regards,
Dave Starr

Estimating hrs for docs

I needed some input on how to plan new and updated documentation. We are in the 
Semiconductor business, working on user guides, reference manuals, and silicon 
validation reports. If you feel that this discussion is off-topic, please feel 
free to send me an email with your suggestion:

Here is an estimate that I came across the STC website. Is this reasonable? Our 
documents are in Frame and Word. The final output is in PDF format. 

Baseline from the STC website:

Writing new text 3 - 5 hours per page

Revising existing text 1 - 3 hours per page

Editing 6 - 8 pages per hour

Production preparation 5 percent of all other

Consider this preliminary estimate to represent the
number of hours needed if you follow your ?normal?
development process and if the project proceeds without
any major problems.
