1.8 The schedule provides a simple and economical index to a variety of information apparent that not only will there be insufficient room on the drawing to make this method feasible, there will be insufficient drawing office time and money available to make it an economic starter. The schedule does it so much better (1.8).
Given the presence of schedules in the package, the search pattern given in 1.5 becomes simpler and more directly focused. The location drawing is still the starting point, but now the searcher is directed from it to the schedule, and from there to the various sources of assembly and component information (1.9).
Further consideration will be given later to the most suitable format for schedules and to the areas of information which lend themselves most readily to scheduling. All that remains to be settled for the moment is what sort of an animal this hybrid most resembles. Is it a drawing, or some other form of document? If a drawing, then what type of drawing is it?
In practice it does not really matter provided that all the implications of the choice have been fully considered, and that having made your decision you are consistent in sticking to it.
