The Aerospace and Defence industry, by nature, produce a high volume of paperwork, much of which is business critical. The complexity of their products and strict design and QA controls also demand lengthy retention periods.
Documentation is produced for design, manufacture, testing, maintenance and parts and hundreds of technical manuals have to be accessed for ongoing maintenance and repairs.
The types of documents can be test records, C of C’s (Certificates of Conformity), parts lists, work cards, tool box control cards as well as GRN’s, release notes, supplier invoices and the usual range of accounts paperwork.
Information also often needs to be shared between customers, manufacturers, suppliers, legislative authorities and other organisations.
Electronic document management is being increasingly implemented as a means of controlling and managing all this information and allows all these issues to be easily resolved. Electronic document storage in the aerospace industry is also approved by the C.A.A. and F.A.A.
