Engineering Prints

Engineering prints can present some difficult issues when working on changes.

  • Maintain a master list of current prints in your document control system.
  • If prints are distributed, they must be controlled.
    • Operators verify documents against the master list.
    • The Document Control Coordinator marks prints with a job number.
    • The print is good only for the job number.
  • Prints and documents of external origin must be included in your document control system.
    • Customer prints
    • Industry regulations
    • ISO standards
    • References used for your documentation
  • Your master list should have a section (Documents of External Origin) containing the following information about each document or print.
    • Document name
    • Current revision
    • Document location(s)
    • Document number (assigned by your company)
