Hi All,

We have a flowchart with the word "Paperwork" on it.

This means the job travelers, or packets that go with a manufactured
product through the process... Currently paper process. However this
will soon be automated. Same functions but no "paper".

Someone here is concerned about the word "paperwork" and they don't want
the word "documentation". Can anyone suggest another word that would do
the job so we don't have to update the flow-chart again in a few months?
