There are often problems with design documentation, such as incomplete or missing and quality of input. A pre study within an engineering department for advanced machinery investigates the quality of production equipment acquisition documents used with the performance of the acquired equipment in terms of maintenance costs.The study shows indications that incomplete or missing input as well as the quality of the input could have an impact on the performance of the acquired machines and the project performance.

Keywords: documentation management, design activities, performance indicators, equipment acquisition
