Documenting Vee PCBA test for ISO 9001

Is there a good way to document a test procedure that includes what Vee is doing during the test? Say you are controlling an Agilent 34980A as well as a 7014B O'scope and a Keithley 2100 DMM using Vee. Should I be recording on paper what each test involves, what is controlled, what relays are being activated, what the expected outcome should be? Or is there a better formal way of documenting a test? This is for a PCBA test and there are many test points to have data recorded. And by the way, I already dump the data to an Excel spreadsheet. Thanks!

I do documented the keynote. Some people like to use Notepad object from the Display menu. Alternatively, at any VEE object, right click and select Description, we can enter documentation here as well. After finish, there will be a little red triangle on top right of the VEE object. Hoover the mouse over it and the text entered will be displayed. I use these two most of the time.

Maybe others have more idea :)

I guess I wasn't clear. I want to document the test process formally as we have to do that for ISO compliance. I have a Word doc with cells that show each test step with a name, units of measure, a spec with tolerance, now I should show an interpretation of what is going on during that part of the test because they aren't going to open up the program and examine every little step I do (since it would be to confusing to the non-Vee programmer). So I want to put in a brief syopsis of what is going on during the test; i.e: Generator outputs a DC level of 2V, relay 5011 closes in 34980A measurement module, voltage inputs ADC at J12 pin 1, query XXX to pcba returns decimal 12000.
Maybe I answered my own question. But I have not seen any automated controlled hardware testing documentation on the web. All I see is documents for software testing so hence my question.
