ENGINEERING DOCUMENTATION & TYPES OF DOCUMENTATION


Documentation is a set of documents provided on paper, or online, or on digital or analog media. Examples are user guides, white papers, on-line help, quick-reference guides. (Tài liệu là một một bộ các văn kiện được cung cấp trên giấy, trên mạng trực tuyến, hoặc sách thiết bị kỹ thuật) Documentation is distributed via websites, software products, and other on-line applications. The procedures of documentation vary from one sector, or one type, to another. In general, these may involve document drafting, formatting, submitting, reviewing, approving, distributing, reposting and tracking, etc., and are convened (hợp lại; thu xếp) by associated SOPs (Standard Operating Procedure) in a regulatory (quy định; chỉnh lý, chỉnh đốn) industry. It could also involve creating content from scratch. Documentation should be easy to read and understand. If it's too long and too wordy, it may be misunderstood or ignored. Clear, Short, Familiar words should be used to a maximum of 15 words to a sentence. Only gender ((ngôn ngữ học) giống)) hyper (cực kỳ hiệu nghiệm) neutral (trung lập) word should be used and cultural (văn hoá) biases (nghĩa bóng) should be avoided. Procedures should be numbered when they are to be performed.

In engineering, technical documentation refers to any type of documentation that describes handling, functionality and architecture of a technical product or a product under development or use. Some of the various types of documentation include:

  1. End-user documentation details what is included with the product, how the hardware is assembled, installed, used, or works: Instructions – Operational Method Sheets – Manuals – User Guides - Review – Report – User Guides – Manual – Specification – Standard., etc.
  2. Requirements documentation provides context about the key performance indicators and technical requirements of a project or product: Specifications – Standardizations – Technical Standards – Reviews – Reports – Discipline Specifics.

The intended recipient for product technical documentation is both the (proficient) end user as well as the administrator / service or maintenance technician. In contrast to a mere "assembly" manual (Ngược lại với sách hướng dẫn "lắp ráp" đơn thuần), the technical writer/illustrator aims at providing enough information for a user to understand the process of assembling a complete product or unit of a product, primarily performed by human. The technical writer task is to translate the usually highly formalized or abbreviated (dịch thường được chính thức hóa hoặc viết tắt) technical documentation produced during the development phase into more readable, "user-friendly" prose (thành văn xuôi "dễ đọc hơn với người dùng").

Technical documentation isn’t just about capturing information. It’s about presenting it in a way that’s easy to read, usable, and actually helpful for your audience. Technical documentation is usually either written by a subject matter expert (i.e. someone who knows what they’re talking about), or a technical writer who’s been trained to translate complicated product knowledge into content that’s more easily understood by the end users.

Document Control System is the process of organizing, routing, tracking, authorizing and distributing all documentation involved in the design, development and manufacturing of products. Its designed to ensure that documents remain legible and readily identifiable, to ensure that documents of external origin are identified and their distribution controlled, and to prevent the unintended use of obsolete documents, and to apply suitable identification to them if they are retained for any purpose.

Document Control and ISO 9001: The ISO 9001 family of quality management systems is a set of standards that helps organizations ensure they meet customer and other business needs within statutory and regulatory requirements related to a product or service. ISO 9001 Requires that business maintain control of documents...

  • Approve documents for adequacy prior to issue
  • Review, update as necessary, and re-approve documents
  • Identify the changes and current document revision status
  • Make relevant documents available at points of use
  • Ensure the documents remain legible and readily identifiable

ENGINEERING DOCUMENT NUMBERING SYSTEM


Document Control Number (DCN) provides a reference number for the control and monitoring of each claim. To differentiate between claims for the beneficiary, the system creates a unique control number. The DCN may also be referred to as the ICN. The DCN is a 23-position number assigned by the system. All paper submitted claims are assigned a unique Document Control Number (DCN). The DCN identifies and tracks claims as they move through the claims processing system. This number contains the Julian date, which indicates the date the claim was received. It monitors timely submission of a claim.

Document Numbering System (DNS) is an essential part of the document management process, it is a method of identifying documents so that relevant and crucial information can be created, organized, shared and stored correctly. Uses a numbering system where the type of document and department are identified, then documents are numbered sequentially as they are created. If we want to sequentially number documents, we add it to either the header or footer. For example:

  • SOP.IS.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Installation Specification
  • SOP.LD.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Logic Diagram
  • SOP.LO.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Layout
  • SOP.ML.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Material
  • SOP.OM.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Operational Manual
  • SOP.PB.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Patch Board
  • SOP.PC.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Printed Circuit Board
  • SOP.PF.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Fabricated Part Detail
  • SOP.PR.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Rack Profile
  • SOP.PS.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Purchasing Specification (Technical)
  • SOP.QC.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Quality Control Standard
  • SOP.QT.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Qualification Test Procedure
  • SOP.RD.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Repair Description
  • SOP.RL.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Running List
  • SOP.SA.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Sub-assembly Drawing
  • SOP.SC.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Specification Control Drawing
  • SOP.SD.001 – would be an SOP belonging to Schematic Diagram

Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) offers detailed, written instructions on how to perform a routine business activity and explain the process being described.

Engineering Document Numbering System: All Engineering documents shall carry a unique identification number consisting of five groups: (1) a two letter prefix, (2) a three digit number, (3) a second three digit number, (4) a two digit suffix, and (5) the letter E, C or R followed by one or two digits. These five components shall be separated by dashes.

Examples 1: Character preceding revision on face of released drawing SD-123-456-78 E1 —» Character after filename sd12345678.e1

Examples 2: Character preceding revision on face of released drawing PF-345-666-88 C1 —» Character after filename pf34566688.c1

  1. First 3-digit number: This is the first part of the Company 6-digit base number system and shall signify the originating division department, group, or individual as determined from blocks of numbers as assigned by Company Document Control.
  2. Second 3-digit number: This is the second part of the Company 6-digit base number system and shall signify a discrete portion of the assigned work of a division, department, group, or individual as assigned by that group or Document Control.
  3. Two-digit suffix: This suffix shall be assigned by the originating division, department, group, or individual to distinguish one assembly, sub-assembly, or part from another.
  4. The revision level designation: The purpose of this group is to indicate the software used to generate the document and to identify each revision or change of any part of an engineering document.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DOCUMENT CONTROL PROCEDURE


Working with the proper EMS (ISO 14001) documents: The company should have a procedure that describes how such documents are controlled. Implementation of this procedure should ensure that Environmental Management System documents can be located, are periodically reviewed to make sure they are still valid, are current and available where needed, are removed if they are obsolete.

  • The Environmental Management System (EMS) manual defines the limitations of the environmental management system within the company.
  • The EMS manual prevents pollution, meet compliance standards for any applicable legal requirements, as it conveys the environmental goal of the organization.
  • The EMS manual captures the roles, responsibilities and authorities for each process.
  • The EMS flow chart explains the processes, procedures, and environmental interactions difference, even if the elements are similar, they may interact differently.

Responsibility and Authority: Document control specialists are responsible for managing company documents while also ensuring their accuracy, quality and integrity. These specialists help companies adhere to record retention policies, safeguard information and retrieve data more effectively. A document controller is responsible for the timely, accurate and efficient preparation and management of documents. They control the numbering, sorting, filing, storing and retrieval of both electronic and hard copy documents produced by technical teams, projects or departments.

The development of a company’s document control procedure: Here are some things to think about to expedite the development of your company’s document control procedure. Document control procedures set the framework for how documents are approved, updated or amended, how changes are tracked, how documents are published (internally or externally), and how documents are made obsolete. Here are some things to think about to expedite the development of your company’s document control procedure.

  1. Don’t make your document control procedure more complicated than it needs to be. While larger companies often have complex processes for document control, smaller companies can use simpler processes.
  2. Make the job easier by limiting distribution. Determine how many hard copies you really need and where digital/electronic files should be maintained for ease of access. Consider using a paperless System if the people that need access to documents are connected to a local area network or have access to the company’s internal Web site. Such Systems can facilitate control and revision of documents considerably. There also are a number of commercial software packages that can simplify the document control effort. To avoid edits to documents by unauthorized personnel, you can convert documents to a read-only format (such as PDF) before putting thi on the network.
  3. Prepare a master index that shows all of your iS documents and the history of their revision. Include this master index in your iS manual. Also, if multiple paper copies of documents are available at the facility, prepare a distribution list, showing who has each copy and where the copies are located.
  4. Highlight the changes (by underlining, boldface, etc.) as your procedures or other documents are revised. This will make it easier for readers to find the changes.

Documents Used in Logistics (Tài liệu được sử dụng liên quan tới hậu cần). These are commonly used export documents that may be required depending on the rules of the U.S. government or importing country. Bill of Lading | Certificate of Origin | Commercial Invoice | Consular Documents | Destination Control Statient | Dock Receipt | Electronic Export Information (EEI) | Export License.

The ECC process include: Issue identification and scoping | Creation of an ECR | Review and approval of the ECR | Creation of an ECO | Review and approval of a ECO | Approval notification | Change implementation.

Engineering Change Notice (ECN) is a document that begins the process for making adaptations or corrections during a product’s lifecycle. It's an official notice in change management that a change has been approved. The ECN communicates the details of the approved change and authorizes the manufacturer to implement the change to the production. The ECN is used to ensure that contract manufacturers and partners are producing products to standard when changes are made.

Engineering Change Order (ECO) is the documentation outlining the proposed change to the design, lists the product or parts affected and requests review and approval from the manufacturers. The ECO is used to make modifications to material, assemblies and subassemblies and other types of product information. An ECO is issued when an error is found and corrective action is taken. It is also used when a component becomes obsolete or reaches the end of its life cycle. The engineering change processes generally required: A request | An order | A notification with steps that are related to each other as follow: Identify the problem and the scope | Create an Engineering Change Request (ECR) | Review and approve the ECR | Create an Engineering Change Order (ECO) | Review and approve the ECO | Communicate the Engineering Change Notice (ECN) to relevant groups | Implement the required change.

Engineering Change Request (ECR) is the first step in change management in the manufacturing process. The document details the proposed changes and the impact of the change on the error in the product. The issuance of the ECR is a formal process of reviewing and proposing a change to a product, components or assemblies. Generally, the ECR precedes the engineering change order (ECO). An ECR allows you to document the reason for the change request, attach supporting documents and identify the BOM Items or Documents that you would like changed. There are three types of change request: Standard | Normal | Urgent.

Engineering Information Management Standard: This standard outlines the status coding structure for engineering documentation. This standard applies to all Company business units. Reference Document (Read Global Quality Management System). The Responsible Design Owner (RDO) is responsible for accurately maintaining the status off the associated engineering documentation that it manages. See Eng Info Mgmt Std.

Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) is a term used for companies that design, manufacture, test, distribute, and provide return/repair services for electronic components and assemblies for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The EMS company may first provide a product concept detailing the main objectives of the project and preliminary specifications. The company may do research by interviewing product users, consulting experts, and exploring existing related products. After these two steps occur, the product is then developed, visualized, and tested, and a prototype is sent to the customer for approval.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The software that manages a company's financials, supply chain, operations, commerce, reporting, manufacturing, and human resource activities. The main purpose of an ERP system is to increase organizational efficiency of an organization by managing and improving how company resources are utilized. Improving and/or reducing the number of resources necessary without sacrificing quality and performance are keys to effectively improving business growth and profitability.

First Article Inspection (FAI): The dimensional inspection and asociated qualification of a first sample or lot received of a part or subassembly to ensure the supplier has the capability to meet all applicable specifications and to ensure fitness for use, as determined by design/responsible Engineer.

‹•› Achieve the optimised supplier base, and consequently create the most effective network of alliances with the best suppliers in the industry.

Maintaining External Agency Documents: This document describes the procedure used by Document Control to obtain and maintain External Agency documentation. This procedure applies to External Agency documentation required by groups involved with products in A-Dept and D-Dept. This document does not apply to Customer Specifications. This document does not apply to External Agency documentation used by B-Dept and C-Dept business units. See Mgmt Extl Agcy Doc.

Master Index Object Definition Components: The object definition includes three primary components that together define the structure of the data in the master index application. Most configuration files in the master index application rely on the objects and fields defined in the Object Definition. For example, the fields you specify for the match string, queries, standardization, and the survivor calculator must all be defined in the Object Definition. © Oracle Corporation

Master Index Object Definition Objects: In a master index application, information is stored in objects. Each object in the data structure represents a different type of information. For example, if you are indexing businesses, you might have one object type to store general information about the business (such as the business name and type), one to store address information, and one to store contact information. When indexing personal information, you might have one object type to store general information about the person (such as their name, date of birth, and gender), one to store address information, and one to store telephone information. The object structure can have several objects, but only one primary object (called the parent object). This object is the parent to all other objects defined in the Object Definition. The object structure can have multiple child objects or no child objects at all. © Oracle Corporation

Master Index Object Definition Fields: Each object in the object structure contains fields that store the data elements of the object. You can specify properties for each field in the object structure, such as a length, name, data type, formatting rules, and so on. The fields you define in the object structure also determine the structure of the database tables. You can also specify certain properties for each field that determine how the database columns are defined, including the length, name, and required data type. © Oracle Corporation

Master Index Object Definition Relationships: In the Object Definition, you must specify the parent and child objects. The object structure must contain one parent object. All remaining objects defined in the structure must be specified as child objects to that parent object. © Oracle Corporation

Master List of Document: The Master Document List is a place where business processes, documents, standards, qualities, procedures, locations documents can be stored.

Material Rquirements Planning (MRP): MRP is a computer-based inventory management system designed to improve productivity for businesses. MRPs give you control over your manufacturing processes and include powerful tools for production scheduling, managing bills of materials and inventory, machine capacity scheduling, demand forecasting, and quality assurance. There are three MRP types used by many companies, there are, in fact, four different types of facilities in the supply network.

The three major MRP Types uses by many companies:

  • XO – W/O, with BOM Explosion
  • MX – MRP, fixing type – O-w/ SNP Read
  • MO – MRP, fixing type -O-

The four different types of facilities in the supply network: There are two types of XO locations often described as a "Type 1" and a "Type 2" XO.

  • Type 1 XO locations are thoroughly planned in APO.
  • Type 2 XO locations are half planned in APO as the finished goods planning, and half planned in R-3 as the sub-component portion.
  • MO - MRP, fixing type -O-

Manufacturing Change Order (MCO) is a change order used to make a manufacturing change to a product. An MCO is not generally used to implement a design change to the product. Manufacturing change orders do not require a design change and are often accompanied by an ECO The Manufacturing Change Order is used to indicate pending engineering changes to the process engineers. The ECR and ECO indicate to the engineer which portions of a Bill of Materials are changing, because the engineer needs to evaluate and update processes accordingly.

Manufacturing Change Request (MCR) is a change request used to propose a new change to the manufacturing process that does not require a change in the design to the product.

Notice of Extension means a written notice in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A delivered to or by the Executive that advises that the Agreement will be extended as provided in such Paragraph. Generally speaking, all terms and conditions stated in the original contract will remain the same for the new dates of the agreement extension.

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM): A manufacturer of a product or component that is purchased by your company and is retailed under your company's brand name. OEM refers to the company that originally manufacturered the product.

Off-the-Shelf (OTS): An item that is not produced to your company material specification, but to a supplier's specifications, and is commonly available to other buyers.

Production Change Order (PCO) is a change request specifying proposed modifications to the manufacturing process or equipment.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) refers to the handling of a good as it moves through the typical stages of its product life: development and introduction, growth, maturity/stability, and decline. This handling involves both the manufacturing of the good and the marketing of it. The five stages in the product life cycle are: development, introduction, growth, maturity, decline.

Potential Change Order (PCO): A potential change order is an item the contractor expects or anticipates might result in extra work or additional costs. It usually results from owner directives, bulletins, clarifications or changes to the original drawings or specifications. This proposal should outline work associated with the change. A PCO can be sent from the project owner to the contractor, or from the contractor to the subcontractor. The party that receives the PCO then reviews it and it responds with a proposal. The Potential Change Order Reason can be: AML, Cost, Design Fix, Engineering Quality Built, Manufacturing Fix, NetSuite, NPI, Quality, Sustaining, SW/FW Change.
