Update to Corrective Action module to explicitly document PA

An update is required to the CA module to more explicitly differentiate between Corrective Action and Preventive Action. More details to follow.

    There would be three different ways to go about this.

    1. Add a new column to the action details table where you could select between "Corrective Action" and "Preventive Action"
    2. You could create a new workflow stage specifically for preventive action
    3. You could separate Corrective Action & Preventive Action as their own record types

    I think the first two are viable options.

    Consider including approval workflow for both CA & PA

    If there are changes planned to the module I would also consider including a simple approval workflow in the action details - so that you could select a user who needs to approve the actions before they go into implementation

    CAPA should link to some kind of automatically scheduled review

    I think big part of the CAPA workflow is to review the effectiveness of the preventive action after some months or years. It would greatly beneficial to have an automatically scheduled review option. The scheduled review could actually be a new workflow stage of its own and it would remain closed until the time for the review comes.
