Technical documentation or technical publications (tech pubs) refer to any type of documentation that describes the operation, functionality, and architecture of an end product. The intended end-user of the technical documentation is often a service or maintenance technician who has some formal training and familiarity with the end-product that the technical documentation is addressing. The technical documentation is focused on providing enough information for a user to understand the operation and maintenance procedures required to operate or repair the subject end-product. Technical writing or tech writing is the task of translating and streamlining usually complex engineering data into a final document geared toward the end-user’s reading comprehension level.

Today, technical documentation is often accompanied with illustrations and animation to help highlight the operation and repair of an end-product. With the technology world in which we live, parts manuals, service manuals, and parts databases are increasingly delivered to the end-user via a variety of platforms: traditional hardcopy printed manual, the Internet, or apps on tablets and smart phones. Although technical documentation is often considered a "necessary evil" by manufacturers, most of them realize that well-prepared aftermarket support material is critical in sustaining good customer service.
