Thanks for the input. Robert, you list was helpful. I was able to pull a
few things directly out of it and it gave me a few other ideas. I have an
initial document control process in place. It's pretty basic and will have
to grow, I'm sure. I'm trying to learn the standard so that I do as much as
necessary AND NOT ONE STEP MORE. ;-) The actual requirements for Document
Control is really quite small, but it is the interpretation that is going to
be difficult. I'm working with folks who have worked under these standards
for a long time. They tell me I must do things that I find no basis for in
the standard. Should be interesting discussions. :-)

Thanks for listening. It doesn't feel quite so overwhelming this morning.
A bit like eating the elephant, but there is a process for that too, right?
One bite at a time!! (Sure hope someone documented that one...with
a unique ID..reviewed, approved, stored properly...*sigh*) :-)
