Welcome to the forum !
I am possibly going to inject some disagreement to preceding post. Spice of Life.
Yr post is a familiar QA woe but I didn’t completely understand the content.
If you have successive revisions of an in-use Primary document like Training, how can you keep track without document control, eg version identification ?
Or perhaps yr documentation procedure is not able to be readily implemented due (something).
Or you are effectively a 1-person show, when I can also get where you are coming from ?
Older versions of iso9001, and their auditing, demonstrated that documentation can become a self-propagating liability. But detail can also genuinely relate to the complexity / risk levels associated with yr business.
However, I can guarantee that if you ever experience any major FS headaches, and most of us will, lack of adequate documentation can really bite you (and also lack of associated Security ). Nonetheless, some companies go to, IMO, extremes to cover their commercial “backs”. For example I had one experience where the MD demanded that the Chiefs of every Section potentially relating to every QA procedure had to approve/sign any revision before it could be implemented. Net result – stasis, and fury.
Basically I suggest you need “good” traceability but without letting the effort to maintain it bog down yr day. If this is the case, yr documentation procedure probably demands streamlining. Or more person-power ? .
