Subject: Search Feature Needs Design Concept

Dear Morris,

Doc logs can be assembled on particular subjects, so they are not so unweildly, as might be imagined, even in a busy setting noted in your letter today.

But, what's a "subject"???

It's like our discusison on what's a metric?

"Subject" is a big part of "metrics" in communication, but it is a difficult job that takes time and training to get beyond jumping at what ever pops into the mind at the moment.

How do you envision a "search feature" being applied across documents and the SDS record?

What about SDS as a "case study" training environment?

Would someone in charge of a training department think this is useful? Even if the training department person didn't think it would be useful, do you think it would be useful, i.e., enable people to see typical scenarios that lead to downstream problems, which are not evident at the moment, and which is why we need training.
