Noting dimensions on drawings

Noting dimensions on drawings

Is there a reason that many part drawings don't show a lot of the dimensions that would make checking machined parts for accuracy much easier? I've taken a Manufacturing Engineering course at my high school for 4 years and am now employed as a machinist assistant in hopes of getting job experiences. Most of the drawings I've seen, both in school and at work, are missing many key dimensions and require a bunch of math that my coworkers and I believe should be unnecessary. Is there a reason for this? It seems like a lot of time could be saved in the shop with a couple extra button-clicks on the computer.
