In an industrial or industry context, documentation refers to written or recorded information that provides instructions, information, or evidence about a process, product, or system.
Documentation is used to ensure that a process is executed consistently, to provide training and support, and to maintain a record of the process for regulatory or audit purposes.
"Our company has strict documentation requirements for all stages of the production process to ensure that our products meet quality standards."
"The operator manual is an important piece of documentation that provides instructions on how to use the equipment safely and effectively."
