SuiteSecurityTM allows setting any Level of Security that your company requires by providing Customer Definable User Groups, User Group Rights(over 130 Rights in 11 different categories), Users, Logins & Passwords, Virtual File Cabinets, Resource Collections, restricted "Views" in User Configurable Combinations. These will provide any level of Security that a Company may require.

Set the desired Security Level by Creating the required number of User Groups in your Company, setting User Group Rights, adding any number of Users, Resources & Sign-Off States to these User Groups. Users inherit their combined User Group Rights based on the User Groups they belong to which allows them to Access SuiteFactory's Specific: Features, Data, Resources, Information, Files, Documents, etc.

In order to meet ISO9000 Document & File Change Security, SuiteSecurity Captures any Document Change Events(Customer Configurable) that are generated when making Changes to Files & Documents. You can also activate the "Reason Required Feature" which will require User to enter a reason(s) for changing any Documents & files. When the Event is triggered a User is presented with a Customer Configurable List of Change Reasons and an input screen to enter a brief description of these Changes. You can then use SuiteReports to generate a detailed Document & File Change Report!

These Forms also provide an area for entering an explanation for these "Changes" and is then stored in the History Change Database.

Change Events


SuiteSecurityTM Activate Specific Change/Reason Events

  • Activate any of 77 Events for DNC Files Events
  • Associate a Limited Set of your Change Reasons to a Specific Event for a DNC File
  • Activate any of 23 Events for Controlled Documents
  • Associate a Limited Set of your Change Reasons to a Specific Event for a Document
  • Activate any of 21 Events for Packets
  • Associate a Limited Set of your Change Reasons to a Specific Event for a Packet

Note: A Company may not want to have SuiteFactory Prompt them everytime an Event happens. SuiteSecurity allows you to select Events to which a User is to Respond. Note however that even if a User isn't required to respond to an Event this Event is still recorded in SuiteFactory's History Database.


Virtual File Cabinet

SuiteSecurityTM User Group Secure File Cabinets

  • Create any number of File Cabinets
  • Create any number of Draws, Folders, Sub-Folders within a File Cabinet

  • Drag, Drop & Move File Cabinets, Draws, Folders & Sub-Folders
  • Turn-On/Off File Cabinets views as needed
  • Securely Drag & Drop Documents/Files from with-in or external to SuiteFactory

Note: Optionally using SuiteFactory's Virtual File Cabinets provides another Level of Security by restricting "Access" to Files, Documents & Packets that are contained in a File Cabinet Draw to which selected Users have access Rights. Virtual File Cabinets also provides a Sophisticated Management Tool for controlling all of a Company's Files/Documents/Packets.

Resource Collections

SuiteSecurityTM User Group Specific Resource Collection(s)

  • Associate with N/C Files
  • Associate with Machine Tools
  • Associate with Packets
  • Resource Collection Security Properties

Note: For Users who need access to N/C Files, Packets & Machine Tools, Resource Collections not only provide a way to segregate the Correct "N/C File to Machine Tool Relationships" but provide another Level of Security so only those Users who should have "Access" to these Files, Packets & Machine Tools do have "Access".

Sign-Off States

SuiteSecurityTM User Group Specific Sign-Off States

  • Sign-Off States Associate with Sign-Off User Groups thus Users
  • Sign-Off Flow Chart that contain Sign-Off States

  • Sign-Off Flow Charts that can be Associated with Controlled Documents
  • Sign-Off Flow Charts that can be Associated with with Packets

Note: For Users who are restricted to accessing to N/C Files, Documents & Packets that have reached at a particular Approval Level the use of Sign-Off States provides another Level of Security.

Putting All Together

SuiteSecurityTM How it Works

Security starts with the User Group(s) in which a particular User(s) belong(s). The User(s) inherts the Specific Rights Configured from the 11 Categories for each of the User Groups within which they belong.

Using N/C Files as an example we note that even though a Particular User(s) may have Specific Rights to Manipulate N/C Files if this User is not part of a User Group that has access to the Resource Collections which contain the N/C Files they need, they will not be able to "Access" them.

If a User needs to Communicate with a Particular Machine Tool they will not only need access to the Resource Collection containing the required N/C Files but the Machine Tool will need to be Associated with this Resource Collection.

Further if Virtual File Cabinets are used then this User must also have Rights to a Particular File Cabinet associated with the Files to which they need Access.

Further if Approval and Sign-Off is used the only way a User can access an Unapproved NC/File is to be part of a User Group that is associated with a Sign-Off State where that File is in a Pending Approval State. See SuiteApproval for more details!

You can have any Level of Security from "None" to "All" as dictated by your Company's Policies.

Note: Documents' and Packets' Security is handled similarly.
