Subject:QUERY: Document Types and Hierarchy? From:Nancy Hayes <nancyh -at- PMAFIRE -dot- INEL -dot- GOV> Date:Mon, 10 Oct 1994 17:25:45 GMT
I've got a couple of questions for you:
1. What type of documents does your company (do you) work with?
2. What type of document hierarchy does your company have?
For example, the setup for my company is:
Requirement Manuals (tech specs, environmental specs, OSHA,
Company (cross-departmental, entire company)
Department (half-a-dozen users)
Section (usually only a couple users)
Specific group (one primary user)
You can either email me (nancyh -at- pmafire -dot- inel -dot- gov) or post answers
to this group. Thanks for your time and help.
