QS states; "A master list or equivalent documentation control procedure identifying the current revision status of documents shall be established . . . ."
A master list seems to be the choice that most people pick, however; does anyone have an equivalent method that they would care to share? And how would it be made readily available to operators.

An on-line look-up of the actual document. In other words, if a print is out in a tool shop, the employees don't go to a master list, but to a terminal, look up the rev level on the actual drawing - is one example.
No need for a master list.

We also had a documentation control area which held process specifications. The master document in the file was the "master list." If new ones were issued to the floor, the manufacturing area had to remove the old. If there was a question of a document on the floor, the master file in the documentation control area served as the "master list." There were thousands of part numbers, so to keep a master list would have been a redundant waste of time.
Further control on those documents was the engineering rev level which the doc center could look up on line if there was further question. The only list kept was a log of what was issued to the floor when. This was a record of change in addition to a quick look up.

I'd be interested in other schemes too. The creation of a master list is some cases seems like a big waste of time.

One of the schemes here is an electronic ECO tracking system. All parts are on the system, along with information about pending ECO effectivity dates for Engineering, Document Control, Materials and Production.
Type in a part #, get the associated drawing # and the last ECO's effectivity dates, along with the revision level.
Nice, since you also get a warning about prospective changes.
