Version Control

All changes made to all Design Control Items requires a change comment from the user, explaining the reason for the change. In this fashion, each change is tracked including why, when, what and by whom.

The modified item automatically gets a new revision number and can at later stages be compared to previous revisions.

All changes made in the project, including modification, trace changes and other actions, are recorded in a chronological audit trail. The audit trail can be searched, sorted, filtered and exported for further analysis.

Each Design Control Item has its own revision history readily available in the Document Object form for analysis and comparison.

In order to prevent the change management from getting in the way of your work, Aligned Elements provides a number of usability aids.

Recently used change comments and standard company change comments are readily available.

Automatic application of the same change comment to multiple objects in the same change session saves time and effort. Revision comparison simplifies analysis of past changes. Reverting to a previous revision without damaging the audit trail saves manual intervention.

Aligned Elements guarantees a complete and consistent audit trail by never coompletely removing objects from the database.

An object can instead be disabled and thus be rendered invisible. The integrity of the data is preserved and the objects can be activated again at a later point in time.
