At my last job we considered such reports as records. So, during the weekly production meetings the materials manager was supposed to bring the purchasing/backlog report, production manager brought the line status report, production control brought the shipping schedule etc. We specified that each of these reports were located with each of these managers as records. Now at my current place of employment they do not do this. Some of the reports they use are generated from our ERP/MRP system & others are not, but they use these reports to make decision that affect on-time delivery etc. so I'm thinking that they need to be considered as records. What's the conscensious on this topic?
