Use of Sharepoint in Quality Management Systems

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi All!

So, first, I'm an experienced Sharepoint 2003/2007 IT pro and just love the platform.

I recently have been engaged with a medical device manufacturer who lives and breathes according to FDA regulations and GMP and Quality Management. The environment presently is a mix of XP computers, traditional shared network drives, and a bit of visual source safe for document storage and control.

While I could espouse how valuable Sharepoint could be to help them regarding their general needs of collaboration, team work, knowledge management, business process management, etc., I'm hoping there may be someone who reads this board and may be able to express more specifically how Sharepoint can fit in to this FDA regulated environment.

I tried googling to see if there was any success stories of using Sharepoint 2007/2010 in a similar environment such as ISO 9001 or other related medical device manufacturing environment. But I really didn't hit the mark.

So i'm posting this message to see if any of you know of any success stories about how Sharepoint 2010 can be an effective platform in an FDA-regulated, QMS manufacturing environment.

I know Sharepoint could handle much of what we need to do. BUt i'm hoping that I can either 1) obtain a case study showing how some other leading organization adopted Sharepoint 2007/2010 in this ver

User Alert Management for a specific list versus entire SharePoint site?

It seems that to be able to manage User Alerts, one must have Full Access to the entire SharePoint site - and then use => Site Settings > User Alerts. Ideally, I would like to be able to grant access to users to only be able to manage alerts for a specific list. Is this possible (without having to do any programming) and, if so, how? If such access is only available at the site level, I will simply create a Permission Level that allows one to only "Manage Alerts" Thanks in advance for any assistance. Dave

SQL Server Management Studio cannot save to SharePoint web folders (WebDAV)

SQL Server Management Studio (2005 and 2008) seems incapable of writing to files in a web folder (WebDAV, web share).  We have web folders served by our SharePoint 2007 SP1 server, \\servername\folder\folder\etc.  Management Studio can't write to them: When I open a file from SharePoint and edit it, the Save option under Fle is not available If I edit a file in SharePoint and save it as a new file, it lets me, but then when I close it and try to find it again, it's not there in the folder. If I open a new file and trying saving it to SharePoint, I get the error, "The specified URL could not be found, or you do not have appropriate permissions". Permissions are not the issue: all our other applications can read & write files in these SharePoint web folders.Any ideas?

SharePoint Designer Applicable Lifecycle Management

Is there any documentation on the best practices and guidelines around the SharePoint 2010 Application Development Lifecycle Management using SharePoint Designer 2010? With all the new features in SPD 2010, it is great tool to build no-code solutions on top of SharePoint using SPD 2010 and browser customization but it would bring new issues of application lifecycle managenet. No one wants to develop the system against production environment. How would Microsoft suggest to do no-code solutions and follow typical application lifecycle management from dev->staging->production deployment, upgrades, release management etc. What I am really looking for is - how would you build the sites using the SPD 2010 and package them up for the staging and production deployment including first release and subsequent releases with upgrades. I think the first time release can be easily accomplished by packaging up the site collection developed in the development environment and restoring it in the staging and production envrionment. Things gets tricky with the subsequence releases with upgradable features without overwriting production content/data. There are some guidelines with the Visual Studio custom development but because SPD development is tied to the sites or site collection, how would you migrate upgradable components (lists, workflows, sandbox solutions, content t
