Abstract [sv]

Ett teknikskifte mot Internet of Things (IoT) kan medföra förändringar både för företag och konsumenter i form av förändrade arbetsroller, nya sätt att producera innehåll och nya sätt att ta del av innehållet. Fokus i denna rapport har legat på vad detta innebär för tekniska skribenter. För att belysa detta problem har en undersökning utförts på ett fallföretag som specialiserar sig på att producera teknisk dokumentation och som börjat kolla närmre på IoT. Undersökningen ledde fram till slutsatsen att rollen som teknisk skribent inom en IoT-kontext kommer se annorlunda ut gentemot en teknisk skribent som skriver traditionellt. För att skriva teknisk dokumentation för IoT ställs högre krav på teknisk kompetens i form av grundläggande programmeringskunskap och ett objektorienterat tankesätt.

Abstract [en]

A technology change towards the Internet of Things (IoT) can lead to changes for both businesses and consumers in the form of changing work roles, new ways of producing content and new ways to share content. The focus of this report has been on what this means for technical writers. To highlight this problem, an investigation has been conducted at a case company specializing in producing technical documentation and which has begun to look closer at IoT. The investigation led to the conclusion that the role of technical writer within an IoT-context looks different from a technical writer who writes traditionally. To write technical documentation for IoT, higher demands are placed on technical competence in the form of basic programming skills and object-oriented thinking.
