Forms are a necessary component of documentation in maintenance and manufacturing. Forms vary from one company to the next, from one product to the next, from one process to the next. Forms vary in complexity, design and format. They may be stored electronically, in hard copy and in many cases both. When a form is filled out (completed) it becomes a record. A record in a simple sense is a collection of data. In many cases records serve as a track of performance, steps, actions within a process. For records to be reliable they must be truthful, understandable and capture the necessary or essential facts. Forms are an organized, reputable and repeatable means of collecting information. 
Forms must be identified, maintained and completed like other documents. Forms are controlled and indentified per regulatory, customer and / or internal requirements. Forms may be appended to documents they support or they may be included inside larger manuals. Forms are often maintained in logs or indices that are stand alone. Forms like records are kept current and archived per requirements. Work instructions define the way forms are completed or filled out so that order and integrity of the form and then the record is maintained.  
Forms vary in complexity and format. Someone must create, validate and maintain forms for them to be useful. Blue Tuna creates, collects and shares forms as a complimentary service for their customers. In some instances forms may be proprietary and Blue Tuna honors and respects customer requirements. Blue Tuna has forms, if you need one just ask. Also if you have forms you would like to share we serve as a repository for them.
Sample forms will change on this web page from time to time. Blue Tuna is not responsible for the end use of these forms we share. Ultimately your company must be responsible for creating / using forms that that reflects the reality of a given process, event etc . . .
