Chapter 26Change Form

Purpose

  • To specify the only/proper form and the instructions to be used to make product design or document changes.

Applicability

  • All product design or document changes to be processed by this CM function.

Policy/Practice

  • Only the form attached (see pg 2) shall be used to make product design or document changes.
  • The change form shall not be used to make changes to process, quality or sales documentation.
  • The change form shall not be used to make changes to the product publications (spare parts lists, service manuals, etc.).
  • The proper form instruction is found on page 3 (should also be on the back of hard copy forms) and may be seen online by placing the curser over the form box.
  • No other form shall be used to make design or design documentation changes.
  • This form shall be used to release documents individually or in groups (in lead time).
  • If new items are required as part of a design change, they may be released with this change form.
  • In recognition that “paperless” is often impractical, “less paper” should be our goal. Therefore, the design of online forms, when printed, will normally be one 8 ½ × 11 size, rather than the “run-on” design used by most IT departments and systems.
  • If your system allows, redesign the online form to accommodate the “less-paper” reality.

Procedure

  • None Required.

Primary Responsibility

  • CM will be responsible for keeping this standard and the form design up to date.
