DITA Metrics - Savings Trend With Reusable Master Topics

This paper is the second in the DITA Metrics series which examines the cost and reuse values for a DITA project to determine DITA ROI. The concepts and ideas discussed are based on the cost model introduced in the first paper, DITA Metrics: Cost Metrics – Part 1

This paper looks at the savings trend when reusable master topics are used to document similar products. How much does it cost to document each additional similar product?

Many thanks to Julio Vazquez for his excellent review and feedback on this paper. Thanks Julio!

And I'm adding a bunch of phrases to make sure this can be searched/found.

Because I had trouble relocating Ian Larner's wonderful "Touching DITA" articles for ISTC. Check them out too.
