3. Context Related Constraints

Time (5): a product changes up to the day its documentation must be printed;

Release cycle (5b): two new versions of main product a year;

Versatility (6): some supposedly frozen product features can suddenly be modified;

Reduced core documentation team (3 people) on different continents (7);

A lot of contributors for different tasks (proofreading, translation, etc.) scattered all over the globe (7b);

Use of Open-Source tools (8): as far as possible;

Content reusability (9): Other people, either in the company or outside of it, must be able to reuse some of the material in other documents.
