We are advancing to a corporate structure in our 4 plants. We have a paperless system (Master Control) to manage our documents through a terminal server from our corporate office. In moving to this corporate structure, I have some questions as to how to manage the documents at each individual location. Each of our facilities has a unique customer base, creating the need for plant specific documents. There are, however, documents that some in our organization think we should share. These documents will contain information specific to one of the locations, but have nothing to do with the other 4. In your opinion, how would an auditor view all these documents that have information on them that have nothing to do with that particular facility? If we have a lot of spaces marked "N/A" on a document, will an auditor consider these documents "cluttered" with unnecessary information? Also, in most corporations, are all the existing plant locations listed in the letter head of all these documents, or just the address for that plant specific location? We are QS 9000 registered and have been for a number of years, but we are new at this corporate structure venture. Your comments will be appreciated!
