Abstract

Recent years have seen a lot of interest in how people use, generate, save and search paper and electronic documents. We build on this and related work to develop a method for profiling engineering documentation. Profiling provides information about 1) the varieties and types of engineering documents, 2) the strengths and weakness of document manifestations; 3) the patterns of document use within different types of engineering company. The method is composed of two elements. A set of facets for describing documents, and a framework with which to contextualize documents.
