    Hello Nyggus,

    To consolidate something is to condense it down to the main points. So, if the write-up on the subject of aims is 10 pages long, the boss may want the paper to be reduced in size to maybe 2 to 5 pages of only the main ideas.

    That is how I understand it.

    Enjoy your day!

    Thanks, Sweet Momma Sue. What does "write-up" means?
    Actually, I am going to enjoy my night! But I hope you are enjoying your day.

    Best,

    Hello again!
    A "write-up" is a written report.
