Document control involves using computer networks to make document sharing more efficient. Document control training topics are generally combined with other topics in quality management.
Many types of jobs require workers to share documents. A document control system is a computer-based system that offers people who need to share their work (e.g. computer programmers) the ability to do so with reduced misunderstandings, confusion and errors.
Document control training topics include part numbering systems, engineering change order systems, communication techniques, proper documentation of changes to files, adhering to the division of labor and document control troubleshooting.
Typically, document control instruction is offered in conjunction with other topics in quality management. It is difficult to find a course that is solely dedicated to document control. Many seminars that last days or months have document control as part of their course content.
