My message above was cut off. I am referring to the subcontractor list. The standard states we do not need to use a list , if we have other methods. What other methods would would work?

2.We have many, many subcontractors who need tracking for on-time delivery. Some parts go to 3 different subcontractors before they come back to our facility. Any ideas how we cna make this easier to track?

barb is correct. Database is the way to go. FilemakerPro, Access (yucch!!!), and others. Especially if you're a LotusNotes company - a lot you can do with LotusNotes.

Have to agree with Marc and barb on this one. A database is the way to go. By the way Marc, what do you not like about Access (other than it is a Microsoft product). I like it a lot and use it all the time. What I hate is having to use Windows (A Mac imitation, which is lousy at best).

Regards,
Don

I guess what I'm asking is when the standard states other ways may be utilized, you still have to have a list?
Maybe I need to become more familiar with databases, but are you not still utilizing a list?

Don't over complicate the issue here. A 'master list' can be made from a database as a report.

Meet the intent - how can you tell what you have? This is an inventory function. What documents are in your inventory? How can you do this? Spread sheet listing. Database report. Any other ways, folks?

I agree with the others that a database would be the best choice. However, you could establish criteria for an acceptable subcontractor, have evidence that a subcontractor fulfilled these criteria and then note on the Purchase Order that the subcontractor is approved. This is an alternative to a list.
