I am reviewing the miss-mash of our Engineering Change Order/Notice process that we have inside our current EPDM vault. I am looking at the SW drawing files and the pdf files generated from them. I am used to a very structured process that allows a person to follow the change history of document back to the release documents and in some cases back to the
original product development history as well.
My question is this, "Do companies still include all history on their Revisions table or do are they sticking with a single revision line in the table?" When I talked to a couple engineers they say they rely on EPDM to hold the old history. Even though when I asked how he views or traces the change history (knowing we have load latest turned on. :-)) he wasn't able to explain the process or how he accessed the old document.
