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.
