#1 Intro - VW Groups VW microfilms Volkswagen is renowned for its good documentation. A new system was introduced at the end of the sixties. All the hard copy parts catalogues were replaced with a brand new microfilm system. This was a big step forward for the people working in the spare parts divisions, both at Volkswagen and at the official VW resellers. Volkswagen organized an 4 internal education program to have all their employees up to speed with the new microfilm technology, a special program was also launched for the Volkswagen reseller personnel. Many had troubles adapting to this new way of working, just as when the Personal Computer was introduced mid-eighties replacing the microfilms with the ETKA PC application at Volkswagen.
