QDMS, standardised handling of documents on all projects

Drawing Management systems such as QDMS provide:
  • A central easily accessible master drawing register that records the latest revision of all documents in the drawing management system.
  • As drawings are revised, the superseded versions are automatically archived to the drawing management history file, thereby maintaining an audit trail.
  • All drawings, specifications, procedures, project plans …etc can now be easily found through a single access point.
  • A powerful transmittal engine to simplify the distribution of drawings and ensure that an audit trail of transmittals is maintained by the drawing management system.

Implementation of the QDMS drawing management system results in the following benefits:

  • Drawings do not go missing and can be easily located within the drawing management system.
  • Drawings can be cross-filed by different groupings. For example: by discipline, by area, by work package … etc.
  • There can be no confusion on whether the latest version of drawings have been distributed to the required people.
  • The drawing management system can be used for legal purposes to establish who was sent what and when
  • The system has in-built security to ensure that users can be restricted in what they can do in the system and that only authorised users can update the drawing management system.

“The software is great.  One of the best features is the transmittal tracker – no one can deny they have received a document when you can show them a signed copy of their transmittal.”

“AGR Field Operations, Asia Pacific use QDMS Solutions’s QDMS to control revisions and statuses of all of our corporate, site operations, pre-project and project (including supplier) documentation. With the help of QDMS Solutions, we have been able to synchronise QDMS with our Intranet/Extranet application (Microsoft SharePoint) to ensure that the documents and all relevant controlled metadata are available to internal and external personnel, according to user permission levels – making controlled documents easy for all Intranet/Extranet users to search for. QDMS provides the critical function of maintaining traceability of each document as it goes through revision and status changes and of controlling the distribution of all documentation in an auditable process. We have found QDMS Solutions staff to be friendly, helpful and accommodating of our need for timely turnaround of all issues. QDMS is extremely cost-effective and functional for engineering, operations and corporate projects.”

“QDMS has been a very useful tool for us to manage our Project Documentation. We have several thousand documents to be controlled and distributed to global manufacturing partners. Each document package may vary but QDMS enables us to sort and transmit our documents as required. QDMS gives us a full history of what documents have been sent to which partner, so re-issue after document revision is easily managed. The customisable Document Transmittal completes the task for us in a professional manner. QDMS has proven over many years to be the ideal tool for our document management.”
