History

The AC/28 chronological series contains the records of the Working Group of Production and Logistics Experts on the Conversion of American Drawings. The Working Group was created as a result of a meeting between the National Delegations and the Production and Logistics Division on 11 September 1952 (AC/28-D/1). The purpose was to assemble a group of experts to study the problem of converting US technical drawings to permit the manufacture of US equipment and spare parts in Europe. The meetings of the Working Group were attended by technical experts of the national delegations and a Standing Group Liaison Officer. The Working Group met for the first time on 15 September 1952, and held a total of seven meetings over the next two years, the last being on 18 Dec 1953. During these meetings the group discussed the various challenges in the conversion of US technical drawings, such as the measurement and projection systems used, the different testing standards and the symbols used to represent surface finish. The Working Group also discussed how the conversions could make use of and help implement the standards that were being developed by the emerging International Standards Organization (ISO).The Working Group continued to issue documents containing the converted drawings after its last meeting, with the last document issued on 19 March 1959.
