Nothing revolutionary, just that good practise is to actually plan the arrangement of what the panel contains, giving thought to wiring runs and accessibility; and leaving space for expansion if there is any possibility of the layout growing in size or complexity and thus requiring more supplies and control gear.

Documenting the panel arrangement, and using a labelling or numbering system to identify components both on the panel and on the layout becomes progressively more useful as complexity increases.

Systematic identification schemes work well for many people. So for example everything to do with point control is prefaced 'P'; and switch P001, wires P001 and motor P001, means you can trace confidently all the components of one complete circuit. (It is possible to considerably elaborate on this type of scheme, but that's down to individual taste.)
