I write Ops manuals for a medical device manufacturer. We use revision
control for our manuals but we do not indicate anywhere in the manual
which version of the software the manual relates to. So, when a client
calls our Service department or one of our clinical educators and says
that they need an additional manual, we don't know which manual to send
them because that history is not maintained anywhere in the manual.

How do the rest of you manage this?
