We all are surrounded by technology and we humans cannot live without it. These technological processes are very difficult to read and understand by common people and the fact is that scientists and engineers actually work for common people- the end-users. To make this task easy, technical paper writing comes into the picture. This makes it easy by writing the complex technological processes into easy, graspable information.
