Do timecards have any affect on process quality? NO
Are time cards controlled by a company? SURE, but only as they have to by governmental regulations that have nothing to do with manufacturing processes and quality. Not by QS/ISO/TS.
What kind of administrative morass would controlling time cards be? INSURMOUNTABLE
Do employees care abouty control of their timecards? NO, as long as they get paid the hours they work. (boy, they know when they have been shortchanged)
Are we going to control:
-Employee files that are proprietary? For Gov. Regs. SURE--For ISO/QS/TS NO!!!!!!!!!
Let's all be real and know that only documents that affect processes that satisfy the customer are to be controlled.
Just my view!
I understand your point. But realistically speaking we do not know what record in Valís process effects quality. You must ask yourself..Why would the auditor be looking at time cards?
