The best way of keeping the right evidence in the future is to create a template-supported system. You don’t need to ‘create’ new documents, take the guesswork out of the process by providing a checklist to work through and, once in place, save time in the process. It is also the best way to manage the risk of triggering an audit with missing documentation at application time.
The record-keeping will need to be built into the day-to-day business processes so that they are automatically generated and stored. Getting some help to train the R&D Team is invaluable, incentivising them will help, the more they understand why they need to do it, the more likely they will do it.
In our Instructor-Led Consistency Workshop, one of our instructors can provide personalised and comprehensive Training and Workshops for you and your team. We will help you to choose the right work management system, time & cost tracking system, increase the efficiency of the store and find the relevant records. We will also provide you with comprehensive template packs to help you minute all records and keep them in an easy-to-find way. Therefore, in the future, when you need the evidence, you can just open the right folder and pick the relevant document.
Our Monthly Coaching & Support Options provide coaching sessions each month, help you check your documentation process, review documents, and help you prepare and improve your R&D Project documents. We will assist and monitor your Technical Committee meetings. All we will do is keep you on track and make sure all required records are complete and correct.
