Sorry dang state of affairs ain’t it. Before I retired/got laid off 2 years ago the company I worked for for 36+ yrs was constantly trying to implement a “paperless” system and continually failed to get it up and running. Some areas you could do it. Other areas it was nearly impossible. Don’t know if they are still trying or not. So, what’s worse? Paper copies or buying vast quantities of electronics and the energy required to run them all? Dang, now where is that forest? Too many trees in the way to see it I guess. Kind of like the eco-wack-a-doodles wearing the latest in patagonia synthetics to their next protest.
Yeah, the love affair between business administrators, paperless offices, paperless management, paperless engineering, paperless manufacturing, etc. seems to never have gone beyond the love affair stage.
