Limit on outstanding drawing changes

Limit on outstanding drawing changes

Limit on outstanding drawing changes

Is there a standard anywhere that specifies (or even suggests) a limit on the number of outstanding drawing changes that can exist before the drawing must be revised?

RE: Limit on outstanding drawing changes

Not that I'm aware of, I don't think it comes up in ASME Y14.100 series docs.

Might be in the old mil std.

I'd expect this was something that was set by contract or by company.

KENAT, probably the least qualified checker you'll ever meet...

RE: Limit on outstanding drawing changes

As far as I know, this is company specific.

RE: Limit on outstanding drawing changes

I have never seen a standard covering this, usually contract or internally generated.

Once I was incorporating a number of changes to a jet engine part. One of the ecos had me decrease a thickness to save weight. Another had me increase the same thickness to increase strength.
