I'm not speaking from expertise, but my favorite
system (years ago) was a hierarchical, meaningful
structure. Document sets were planned in advance, and
were organized in a fairly consistent (but not rigid)
structure. Anyone could look at a doc number and know
which project it belonged to, and those who cared more
closely could also identify which part of the project
it belonged to and what sort of doc it was.

Admittedly, that was some time ago when things were
simpler (and there were fewer docs).
