Two important tasks that are managed by TDOC
|Task||Brief Conclusion||Content Summary|
|Management of the Design Process [SDRS]||The prime advantage of the SDRS mechanism is that the analysis is done rapidly and accurately, and highlights exactly where a review is hung up.|
Where this results in one or more documents being unfit for purpose, this information can be communicated forthwith to the provider. The act of returning the documents to the provider with comments, status, and markups is done by Document Control.
A second advantage - or "by product" - is the information can be used to generate an Earned Value report.
|This white paper sets forth the basic concepts behind one proven available methodology. It highlights the use of document control data for other management purposes, in particular the one known in the oil and process industries as Supplier Document Requirement Scheduling.|
|Preparing Contract Claims - Collecting and Analysing Information||Any party using a single computerised document control system for the control of their own information on a project is at a natural advantage compared to the organistions that rely on a combination of record systems some of which are often paper based.|
Not only is the cost of preparing a contract claim massively reduced, but more importantly the research can be carried out in a much shorter timescale.
|When a contract claim is prepared, a major part of the effort required is the research to generate the history or "story" behind each of the heads of claim. |
This white paper sets forth how to collect and analyse the various types of information that are required for the preparation of these "stories".
