Hello,

we are auto parts manufacturing company and going for TS certification.
I am being given the responsibility of handling documentation.
Kindly help me in achieving my goal, I have some doubts.

Appendix-Quality manual.
Control regulation of regulations.
Control regulation of Engg Documents.
Control regulation of Records.
Regulation of Quality Control.
Conrol Regulation of Quality Training.

Above are some of the regulations in our manual.
In each of these regulations, there are N number of documents related to the regulation.(example-in control regulation of Engg documents-documents listed are work instructions, quality check standard, one point lesson, external document receiving record, external document control sheet)
My question is:
1.All these documents are available in Manual
Master copy of all these documents should be maintained separately in master list.
OR Its enough if it is available in the manual.
2.All these documents have been allotted a table number in manual.
Can we use the same table number or else a separate number should be allotted to these documents.

If my questions are clear and understood.

Please HELP.
:thanx:

Hello,
I'm not quite sure from your post how your QMS is organised so let's just start with a simple question:
is your QMS structured along with the pyramid?
meaning:
1. top level... Quality Manual only (smallest number of documents, sometimes just one)
2. procedures... all your regulations / procedures for your processes (stating who's responsible for what, how the process works, what are the inputs and outputs. make sure you cover all the mandatory ones by TS)
3. instructions ... these are instructions describing how to do the different steps in the process you described in level 2 (example: procedure is for Engineering change, instruction is how to fill in your Engineering Change document correctly)
4. forms ... these are all your templates / blank forms which you use to do the things you described in your procedures (example: procedure is for Engineering change, instruction is how to fill in your Engineering Change document correctly, use form no. F-1)

All your quality alerts, FMEAS, Control Plans etc are not parts of your QMS as such. Only their templates are and procedures referring to them and instructions how to fill them in.

Hope this helps.

mohamed,

Are you calling your documented procedures "control regulations"? If so, why?

Each of your management system documents is subject to revision. Therefore assign a unique document code to each document. You can then control each document separately as these documents will be revised at different times and you want to provide employees with information they can rely on.

The original (if this is what you mean when you say "master copy") is normally held electronically, in a separate folder on the computer system, by the System Manager or Management Rep.

You may choose to keep a master list of the documented parts of your management system so you can inform users (of hardcopy documents) what version they should be using or you can make the documents only available electronically, in which case you do not need to keep a master list up to date.

Your manual describes your management system and it comprises documents reproduced and issued from the originals. Besides its document code you may choose to number each page n of N where N = the total number of pages. Exhibits in the back of the manual can be controlled separately as these may change more frequently that the description of the management system itself.

I'm intrigued to know what your "control regulations" are.

Control regulation is the control over the documented procedures.
Example- Disposition of Quality records, disposition of electronic media, Quality record list of dept.these are the documented procedures under Control Regulation of Records.
Formats of these documented procedures are available in the manual under Control regulation of records.
My question is whether a separate list of documented procedures(formats) under all the control regulations should be maintained separately OR is it enough if it is maintained in the manual under particular control regulation.

thanks

mohamed,

You're welcome.

I see now that your "Control Regulation of Records" is my Filing and Archiving. In a process-based management system you may find it better to name your documented procedure for the process it specifies.

You may agree that it would be better for your leaders to show their respect for users and commitment to the procedures by their behaviors instead of giving the documents authoritative (off putting) titles.

Where in the documented part of your management system you choose to specify the way to carry out the processes for controlling documented information is up to you. Personally, I provide an overview of these processes in the manual and refer to two documented procedures for the control of documented information:

  • Controlling documents that are subject to revision
  • Filing and archiving records
A. is flowcharted and B. is a spreadsheet.

These reason for this is as I stated in my post above. You need to be able to update system documents quickly so users can rely on their management system to help them to determine and meet requirements. Keeping up with the changes is a lot easier with separate documents than with one thick manual.

Or, when you are ready, you could establish a wiki for helping everyone to use and improve their management system documentation. Search Elsmar Cove for wiki postings by my friend Pancho.
