Ralph interesting and timely (at least for me) I work for a state DOT and we are finally, taking a serious look at going "total electronic and 3d". Like Boeing we need to retain data for a long time (and unfortunately linen, mylar and paper seem to work best). I hope Boeing comes up with some good solutions.

Really like the BW photos gives the article that "old time engineering feel".

Really interesting subject!

I used to work for a small custom products manufacturer, with delivery times scheduled in weeks, rarely months. Doing hundreds of projects every year, and we kept dwg archives for only 7 years. Of course that was before going electronic.

BTW I'm surprised that CATIA tolerances are so low...

Hi Ralph, Great coverage as usual. Just a clarification the F35 is only 1,200 lbs overweight not 3,500 lbs - still requiring a lot of changes that need to be made!
