A matrix tracking all procedures, work instructions, and documents

Matrix


I have created a matrix tracking all procedures, work instructions, and documents. Do I have to reference every work instruction and document in the system? Some work instructions do not specify what document number is used, and some document numbers on the matrix are not specifed in procedures and/or work instructions. In fact, some documents do not have a procedure and/or work instruction explaining what they are used for. The documentation manual explains briefly what they are used for, but that's about it. Am I in compliance?

You need some sort of connection that ties the system together...if procedure b is required to do any part of procedure a then procedure a has to reference how to get there ??????

Dawn,

In fact, some documents do not have a procedure and/or work instruction explaining what they are used for.
It may be that you may be looking for a variation of the old ‘document’ tree paradigm. What I have done (FDA and ISO, not QS) is this:

Document A references document B and C. Document B references document D and E. Document C references no other documents.

You need some sort of connection that ties the system together...if procedure b is required to do any part of procedure a then procedure a has to reference how to get there
{Diagram was here}

In the printed circuit world, this follows the mother-daughter-grand daughter-great grand daughter, etc. concept.

I hope my little diagram helps illustrate. It is hard to do in a pure text world. . Of course, if a single document references more than one daughter (or grand daughter, etc.), there would be a branch in the tree. An affinity or tree diagram would probably be more specific, but that is more than can be posted here.

Am I in compliance?
Do not know. Would have to see the structure and that is not presented. Did not Marc’s document tree help?

Did my suggestion help, or did I just muddy the water.

Regards,
Don

ps. After review, the diagram doe snot seem to work. I have deleted it. Can send copy by e-mail if interested?
