Hi, Just thought I would let you know how I resolved this issue since I was always forgetting to change the master records or doc control list. I put check boxes on our change order forms for adding or changing the rev level for documents to the document control list and the records list. I also created an ECO project sheet that addresses these so when I start a project I check off that I have to update the list. I feel your auditor wanted to see how you will control the list.
If you need any examples send me a private email since I might not get back to the cove yet this week. Good luck
That works, but what about this idea.
We don't have a master list, we use the doc list in the computer folder as a master list.
When a change is needed, we change it right in the sole copy of the master document (When there is only one copy, there is nothing to get out of sync).
The revision date is the computer file save date.
Real time doc control without hardly any effort? What do you folks think?
PS: this paradigm is very similar to what the fancy doc control software programs do. Short, sweet, simple, and it can be done in MS Office.
