It is important to capture the operating procedures for all areas of the organization. So I do have some exposure, however; I consider myself at ground zero. We place drawings, specifications, etc. If confirmed, an engineering change request form must be completed. A list of effective interchangeability rules, a glossary of essential engineering documentation terms and an extensive bibliography of key literature sources are provided. Author by : Frank B.
Join your peers on the Internet's largest technical engineering professional community. During the course of the creation of a document like this, it will pass through many different people who will all input their unique viewpoint into the process. The best of the best practices as to the optimum standards are listed with an opportunity for the reader to check off those that their company has and those they do not. Either way, there has to be a structure for the process. If this is the case, effective document control will capture any amendments, the reasons for doing so for example, a firmware update and the person who made the changes. Changes that do not fall into any of the above categories should be handled by each organisation using their existing internal change procedures. I am very aware of the bass ackwards approach that is being taken here.
Don't have a config management system? For example, for software engineering there may be fewer mechanical drawings but perhaps more process diagrams. As always, the thrust of the book retains a focus on basics, rules and reasons. Watts imparts the same information, but invites the reader to think and to consider strengths and weaknesses of processes and procedures. Does anyone have any good references or standards that I can study? Document control is of paramount importance in an engineering setting. Discusses the requirements for establishing, maintaining and revitalizing an efficient engineering documentation control system for use by technical and manufacturing personnel in private industry. Document control for engineering drawings is comprised of both document attributes and a defined control process. This applies particularly to departments that need to store documents related to the methods involved in their procedures.
All books are in clear copy here, and all files are secure so don't worry about it. From the department that needs to have a procedure in place for new hires, to the manufacturing end-process, it is necessary to have a means of controlling the creation, revision, quality and update of these documents. Ancillary processes which may or may not be thought of as part of these major processes are also addressed, including deviations, service parts, publications and field failure reporting. Any document relating to an area that is being worked on by two or more organisations must be baselined. The format of this form is given below in Section 4.
Consistent reproduction is essential, since it forms the basis for product improvements and production efficiency. Some basic premises have to be followed. The format for the change order is given in Section 5. I am still looking for some other helpful reading material. That is the source that I have been using. To be useful, engineering drawings and engineering data must be stored, reviewed and approved, published and maintained.
In addition, we believe it will be beneficial to those who design, build, service, and supply c1eanrooms, and may be used as a training aid for students who intend to pursue a career involving controlled environments and others such as c1eanroom operators and maintenance staff. The book stresses simplicity and common sense in the development and implementation of all control practices, procedures and forms. The book is written for anyone who is currently involved, or intends to become involved, with c1eanrooms. Depending on the type of engineering that is undertaken, the amount and style of control will vary considerably. The most obvious technological reason for bringing this book into being is that c1ean rooms have become vital to the manufacture and development of high technology products in both the commercial and military sectors, and there fore people have to develop an understanding of them. What I am searching for is references.
Keeping critical information current and in the right hands requires more than just signing off on procedures. Watts, which has been extremely helpful. Because product profitability relies on efficient replication of the original design. Define Form-Fit-Function in the context of Revision Control, based on company needs. I have been assigned the task of setting up a Document Conrol department.
With the help of the simple techniques in the handbook, companies can gain and hold their competitive advantages in a world that demands flexibility and quick reflexes — and has no sympathy for delays. . Combines classical engineering techniques with modern computing to achieve optimum results in assessment cost and accuracy. Tuffill started writing in school, and continued his lifelong education by traveling around the world. Finally, the document will reach approval and be stored in a document repository where anyone who needs access to it will be able to view it. Use the Engineering Documentation Control Handbook to get on track right away and make the release of new products and their documentation flow smoothly and easily.
