We are ISO9001:2000. Current practice to revise a procedure is to generate an engineering change notice to document the revision change. However, this means that every manager in the organization must review and approved the change, regardless of who owns the process. This process is lengthy and far from "lean". Anyone have any tried and true alternatives? Is ther any reason why we can't establish a database to track changes? Cut the approval process to the procedure owner? Does every manager need to review every procedure change? BTW, the same system is used to revise work instructions.
