Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for mechanics and DIY enthusiast owners of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I really admire how the maintenance manuals for cars try really hard to chunk things together based on 1 or 2 easy criteria (typically time or mileage). Where can I go to learn more about how they're developed or how manuals got to look the way they do today?

I'm asking because I'm trying to take a similar approach to my personal maintenance stuff (including but not limited to vehicle-related things).
