The opensource distribution or Erlang/OTP contains all of the OTP
applications and documentation.  From the top of the documentation
tree you will find "System Documentation".  There, at the bottom of
the page, you will find a section titled "Working with OTP":

System Principles
	How to create, start, restart and stop an OTP target system.

Design Principles
	Structure your programs with applications, supervisors and
	generic behaviors (gen_server, gen_event and gen_fsm). Also
	use the built in error logger.

OAM Principles
	OTP Operation and Management Principles
