The manual preparation of narrative technical documents requires an expenditure of considerable time in the review of massive areas of text wherein no changes have occurred other than retyping and reformatting. The advent of computer technology has made it possible to develop computer assisted document preparation systems which eliminate the need for retyping of those areas of a document which have not undergone change and which automatically effect any required reformatting of such areas. Consequently, when an automated text editing system is utilized, the time and money spent in the preparation of many types of documents is greatly reduced. The report describes one such automated test editing system, the CSMS Computerized Specification Management System.
