AutoEDMS' revision control is completely configurable, very comprehensive and can be fine-tuned to match each clients
Any number of revisions can be kept on-line for viewing and copying, but only the current revision will be available for editing. AutoEDMS revision control also manages the situation when one document "replaces" another. Different revision control standards can be implemented for different types of files, controlled vs. uncontrolled files, etc.
Engineering Change Orders, Requests and Notices
Through the AutoEDMS Workflow Engine, customized workflow processes can be designed for engineering change orders,
requests and notices.
The Workflow Engine design example illustrates an ECO-related workflow process. Each company processes change orders differently and AutoEDMS can handle any variety of ECO/ECR/ECN methodology.
These processes typically involve four key issues:
Initial change requests are routed to the appropriate person(s) for review and evaluation.
Change Management personnel then route the requested changes to department heads and managers for their input and approval.
ECO is routed to appropriate departments and personnel. Affected files are assigned and distributed to
The affected files are routed back to management for approval.
Management notifies all affected departments, customers, suppliers, etc. with an Engineering Change Notice to
relate the completed changes.
