The title of this presentation is Paper Costs Money. It could also be entitled Paper Costs Time or Paper Causes Inconvenience. We all know, and talk about, the cost of data which are submitted to the government under shipbuilding contracts. First, I would like to establish some definitions for todays presentation. How many of you know the dreaded acronym CDRL Some people say they are submitting a CDRL. Others say they re submitting data or reports purists say technical documentation. Todays discussion will focus on the data which were required under recent U.S. Navy shipbuilding contracts. It would be nice to examine vessels being built for several commercial owners, but the field is rather limited. And, naval ships built to either commercial rules or military requirements comprise the preponderance of contemporaneous activities in the industry. Perhaps it is tutorial, but the following terms will be used today for common understanding of Navy data requirements CDRL, ELIN, DID, SDRL, and Technical Documentation.
