I was hired to help bring my current company up to speed on QMS. It seems I have a LOT of work to do. Anyway, one thing I want to propose is that we update our controlled document numbering scheme. Here's an example of what is currently being done:
8.1.1 Quality Policy
I am not sure how this works but I think the first two digits are a clause and the last digit is a version number. There is also a:
8.1.2 Food Safety SOP
Where the first two digits are associated with a clause and the last digit is a version number, but do you see the potential issue here. What happens when the Quality Policy needs to be updated to revision 2???
Could some of you post some ideas for document identification numbering schemes where each document has a unique identifier.
