Somehow this post was indicated in a previous one (remember input?) therefore no surprise today with Output right?

The Oxford dictionary defines it as following:
- the amount of something produced by a person, machine, or industry
- the action or process of producing something
- the power , energy, or other results supplied by a device or system

For me the most relevant usage goes into project management since this is part of my professional day to day activities.

An interesting overall description was found here and the significant part goes like this:

When all is said and done, the ultimate measurement as to the success and failure of a project is determined based on the quality, the quantity, and the timeliness of the deliverables of all sorts that are provided at the conclusion of the project. The sum total of the deliverables as well as other unique post project outlays are referred to by the project management term output. In terms of specific project management concepts, the term output refers specifically to any particular services, results, and or products that are generated as a result of a particular project related process. One interesting component of the conceptual idea of output also is that it may come from the result of input to a successor process. Output can come in a multitude of formats from written long form reports, written short form reports, other verbal means of output. Output may also be a formalized type of material or it can be inform and in some cases discretionary and or informational only.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
