The core concept of this system is to break the drawing sheets into more manageable chunks by isolating building elements into groups.

The Divisions

Multiplication table
× 1 2 3
1 1 2 3
2 2 4 6
3 3 6 9
4 4 8 12
5 5 10 15

Benefits from a Drafting point of view

1. Cross referencing errors are reduced due to the relative ease of adding new sheets. 2. Changes in design are easier to handle due to easier insertion of additional sheets 3. Drawing sets are more logical as they follow a set menu.

Benefits from a Directors point of view

1. Cross referencing has always been a major issue when drawing numbers change. This occurs more frequently then is should. Often the problem stems from not allow enough sheets for expansion of the documentation set especially when plans have been sequential numbered. With the decimal sheet numbering system this event is reduced to next to zero. That means less rework of drawings and ultimately a big cost saving for the company.
