Documentation is the group of documents manufactured in connection with a certain project/product. A report is documentation e.g. The need for and the volume of documentation varies a lot from project to project. The volume is dependent on how much opportunity there will be to teach the user verbally, among other things.
Documents can concern themselves with past, present and future. And the same document can concern itself will all 3, depending on the time. The document can design something not made yet, and therefore describe the future. It can also be a todo list for what should be programmed right now. And finally it can be a kind of manual for the finished product, therefore describing the past, what was done.
Documentation can be aimed at different groups. Some is written for the project group, some for the customer, some for the users, and some for 2 or 3 of these groups.
Some documentation exists on paper, some electronically. Some forms of documentation are even part of the product.
