Document Numbering Matrix showing how to number all documents by type


Chaz Master

Hi All,

I used to have a Document Numbering Matrix that I used to edit/modify when starting new companies, however I've misplaced it and now need to find another one preferably in excel format.

Basically this is usually a document showing how to number all documents by type, a Document Numbering Matrix would fit on a single page. Mine used to be printed on A3.

There may be no reply because how an organization decides to number/identify/label its documentation can be as unique as fingerprints.

Some go 1, 2, 3, 4, get the idea.

Some 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, show number and revision/version.

Some go SOP-001, WI-###, show type and number.

Some go SOP-PUR-###, show type, location and number.

And some don't even bother with numbers - they use titles and version numbers only.

So, this document numbering matrix may be specific to your organization which means that we won't be able to help you out.
