SBS - The Best Value in QMS software

ASME, ANSI, ASTM and similar specifications and their requirements for document control.

Hi all.

Thanks for letting me join, I'm a process analyst for a smaller manufacturing company. I honestly am still learning a lot about all the restrictions, paperwork, and the like evolved in this type of work, so bear with me here please. What I'm trying to find right now are the restrictions/ instructions for document control/ what have you about all the specifications called out on the prints. e.i. heat treat specs, material specs, plating specs, that sort of thing. We are currently buying them online, printing them, and then scanning them. However I don't see why I cant just buy them for my computer and keep them saved as the PDF version. Mostly for the purpose of searching for keywords instead of scrolling through 38 pages looking for a specific instance about concentricity. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find what is the standard for saving these documents please?

Thank you in advance.

Many of the original PDFs that you can purchase have DRM limitations. In some cases this means that they are locked to a single computer / hard drive (hope it doesn't break) and are not accessible over a network.

The scanned copy won't have such limitations, but scanning it and saving it on a network might violate the licensing agreement.

If you buy the .pdf version how can they prevent you from storing it on your computer?

As jmech said, some standards have DRM but you can store it on one computer (for a single license) and if that computer crashes just call the org you bought it from and in my experience they'll transfer it to another computer for you.

I just looked at ANSI Z1.4 and it said the electronic version was accessible on 3 computers max per single purchase.

My copy of ASQ/ANSI/ISO 9001:2015 says the pdf file may be viewed but not edited or printed. This is part of Adobe's licensing policy. See page ii.
