Slide 183 of 200
The following is meant to give you some ideas. For example, you will see references to documentation - most of which, by context, is paper documentation. As we all know, there are vast changes taking place every day, from Microsoft’s latest “XP” software experiment to 21CFR11 compliant document management software. Some companies are cutting edge - scanners at every PeeCee and a PeeCee at every station and desk. Some companies are still basically paper based. Most are somewhere in between.
This said, take the ideas presented into the context of your company and systems. Some companies have travelers, for example, while others do not. Some companies keep ‘work instructions’ at each station while other companies have ‘work instructions’ which are part of the traveler package. And, of course, sometimes OJT (or education or experience or a combination thereof) takes the place of specific work instructions.
Also consider vocabulary. As an example, some companies call ‘work instructions’ ‘process sheets’.
