CP 110 and its shortcuts Suggestions and proposals -for simplifying the methods of design recommended in CP 110 occur fairly frequently in this column. We were prompted to look at some of the earlier references and found them in issues which included August 1982, January 1983, January 1984, October 1984, and January 1985.
