Work instructions are vital to any organization. Equally vital is that instructions are standardized and kept up to date with only the most recent version being used. A document management system makes this possible by controlling the document and providing a way to track document versions and changes.
Precision is key in manufacturing. Precision comes from employees knowing exactly what is expected of them and how to perform their tasks. Well-written manufacturing work instructions ensure employees are all on the same page and that you have standardized quality management across your organization.
Even though we live in an electronic age, many companies still use printed work instructions to train employees and guide them through processes. Electronic work instruction software has many advantages over paper, such as version control, automated routing, and document reporting features. Web-based work instructions allow multiple sites to access a centralized document, as well as immediately receive all document updates.
MasterControl Documents™ allows companies to manage work instructions in a web-based, centralized system that provides version control, automated routing, and document reporting features. Users can also collaborate on work instructions by reviewing, revising, commenting on, and approving documents without leaving their work station. The solution also streamlines collaboration tasks, such as routing documents, follow-ups, and approvals.
Organizations all over the world use MasterControl software solutions to ensure compliance – including organizations that enforce compliance. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became a MasterControl customer in 2009. Since then, the FDA has expanded its use and now multiple divisions of the agency use MasterControl software solutions.
