In all manufacturing processes, numerous documents are used to ensure everyone involved in the process completely understands what is required, what their role is, and when it is needed. Historically these were manually stored in job folders, so that all the documentation associated with a manufacturing job was kept in a single location.
With COSS software management tools, Document Control capabilities can be handled electronically, replacing the need to manage a high flow of paper transactions.
Documents are scanned into your job management software, assigned to a specific job, and maintained. Acting like an “electronic filing cabinet” information can then be accessed or edited from anywhere in the world. These documents can be printed if needed, with dates and times assigned to each document.
Complex files, such as CAD drawings or digital pictures can be stored directly with the job. Combined with Process and Revision control, COSS manufacturing software provides a complete set of tools to manage the manufacturing process.
