Completely agree with you sir,
- Only advantage of having clause no is systematic approach and will make cross verification easy.
- For new bee its easy way to understand and follow process as per standard.
I'd just like to support Randy with a general point.
If you start off with a 'systematic approach' that adds no value you end up with a bureaucratic nightmare. The purpose of an audit programme is to cover all of the management system. If (for example) you use a process audit methodology then you will identify all the processes you want audited and cover those. During each audit you will cover a whole range of clauses and, so long as you can demonstrate that all the requirements are covered then you are not obliged to list all the clauses.
As a newbie if you start off following the standard (and not the organization's processes) it is a sure fire way of having a system that is unusable by the people that need to know - the users.
