Hello! I've stumbled upon another confusing aspect, in which I keep confusing myself further, therefore I need your help. I've scoured this awesome website to try to find answers on related topics, but I haven't found what I was looking for.
Alright, so I understand (or maybe I don't ) 2.4.6 as far as non-conforming product or equipment and using a hold tag / hold log, determining disposition...etc. What I am confused about is 11.2.9 Maintenance records. My understand of maintenance and preventive maintenance is: Maintenance - if the sealer on the machine isn't working correctly, so they will stop production and get it fixed asap. Preventive Maintenance - the heating elements on the sealer needs to be replaced annually, so we schedule it to be replaced.
So would the maintenance example fall under 2.4.6 and need a hold tag OR do I need to create a work order sheet under the maintenance and use that? Also, how would I verify maintenance records if I infact do not need a "work order" sheet under 11.2.9? Would I just use the Hold Tag, listed under 2.4.6 to verify maintenance for equipment? I'm trying to create the verification / validation schedule and I'm having trouble figuring out what I need to list.
