I am CALLED, Tech Com, but departmentally I am in General and
(because I am viewed as a service for all of R&D).

Our Documentation Dept. is under Engineering and handles the BOM, ECNs,
release of all documentation, drawings, product trees, etc. . . .

We used to be under Engineering as well, now we're our own department but
still handle all the BOMs, ECNs, manuals, drawings, etc. but now we are
called "Document Control." We include tech writers and draftsmen.

just lies there, dozing; and the world quietly reshapes itself to suit his
comfort and convenience.
