  This presentation describes policies and methods for parts management during fabrication at the European XFEL. The objective is to provide procedures for reliably gathering, recording, processing and archiving the complete mandatory fabrication information. The solution is a foundation for conducting Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC), as it ensures that acceptance tests are recorded, signed-off and followed-up in a reliable and orderly way. It achieves compliance with legal regulations in certain areas. One example is the pressurized equipment directive (PED), which for certain (parts of) equipment requires that the complete fabrication and usage history is tracked throughout the entire lifespan of the XFEL facility. In addition, the solution provides a basis for building the necessary documentation for later installation, operation and maintenance activities. The solution is established in the series production of several accelerator components. It uses DESY’s Engineering Data Management System as central collaboration and documentation platform.
