...The problem is that it INCLUDES the job traveler, the job packet, and
related tags/tickets...

My boss has gone for "UPDATE Job Information" - she likes that because
it does not imply WHERE (paper or on computer)....

You can't just use "traveler"? If that word is inextricably tied to
paper in your company, maybe "job order" or "work order" (if those
phrases don't already mean something else to you), or even just
"manufacturing instructions" or "routing instructions"...
