Hi, As an Automation Engineer I use quite a nice old method of granting access for people to automated production systems as follows: 1. System owner requests a user gain access to a system, indicating their role and their completed training. 2. I complete a paper form, attaching a training report, indicating the system, the users details, and the level of access and get the system owner to sign their approval. 3. Once approved I grant the access to the system, sign it as administrator, and file the form in a folder with other forms. 4. Then annually the system owner reviews a list of all users to the system (that I produce) to ensure the right people have access at the right level and are trained. So my issue is: I would like to get rid of all of this paper and signing approvals. So I propose that we do the same things but instead of a form I use a 'Work Order' on our Engineering Computerised Maintenance Management System. I would add the same detail in the Work Order as on the printed form. But in this instance the system owner would not approve granting of access. My argument is that if the owner or their delegate asked me in the first place why do I need to get them to approve of it? I don't believe documented approval is in any regulations, but I am open to correction on this. I would still have a traceable mechanism of granting access to systems that could be reviewed, but just less paper, printing, storage and compliance issues with form filling. Apologies if this is too long, but I am interested if anyone else is interested in this. Thanks, Eóin.
