documentation
Explanation:
I think "documentation" does not correlate with this expression; however, if you were to use it, documentation would be closer to the character meaning as it implies the preparation or supplying of documents as opposed to a single piece of writing. I believe "manual system" or "manual organization" are more appropriate expressions.
