This study analyzed the effect of small manufacturing firms' systematic documentation on productivity. The study results showed that establishment of work system documentation significanlty affectd defect decrease(p<.05) and production efficiency(p<.01), but ducumentation experience didn't significantly affected productivity improvement. So, it is suggested that firms should establish documentated work system and conduct education & training rather than depending on experiential aspect to improve productivity. This study provided implications for checking importance of documentation factor on productivity improvement and verifying the effect of documentation in quality management aspect.

본 연구는 중소제조업의 체계적 문서화가 생산성에 미치는 영향을 분석하였다. 연구결과 문서화 업무체계 확립은 불량감소(p<.01)와 설비가동률 향상(p<.05)에 영향을 미쳤으며 문서화 교육훈련 정도는 불량감소(p<.05)와 생산성 향상(p<.01)에 유의한 영향을 미쳤다. 문서화 경험은 생산성 향상에 유의한 영향을 미치지는 못했다. 즉, 문서화 업무체계가 높을수록 불량감소, 설비가동률 향상 정도가 높으며 문서화에 대한 교육훈련이 잘 되어 있을수록 불량감소, 생산성 향상의 긍정적 효과를 보이고 있어 중소제조업은 문서화의 경험적 측면에 의존하기 보다는 문서화 업무체계를 확립하고 교육훈련을 실시하여 생산성을 높이기 위한 노력이 필요한 것으로 나타났다. 본 연구는 중소제조업의 체계적 문서화가 생산성에 미치는 영향을 분석함으로써 불량감소, 생산성향상, 설비가동율 향상에 대한 문서화 요인의 중요도를 파악하고 품질관리 측면에서 문서화의 효과를 검증한 데 연구의 의의가 있다.
