Who is listed as part of the "Core Team" in a control plan? I am developing a control plan for an existing manufacturing process where no procedures exist. I am new to the organization so I am interviewing people from all departments. Would I list all people involved with providing me information, or just one person responsible for each department? I worked a lot with the Operators actually doing the work--would I list them? Some people are funny about having their name on documents.
There are two schools of thought on how to go about this. One way is to do what you're doing and talk to people one-on-one, which has the advantage of making it more likely that people who might be reticent in a group setting will speak up. The disadvantages lie in what you're experiencing now--identifying the team and in having to assimilate all of the disparate information into something that makes sense.
On the other hand, the way it's usually done is in meetings, with the relevant team members identified beforehand. The advantage of meetings is that there's a better opportunity to weed out ideas that probably won't work and there's group responsibility for the output. I like the team approach myself.
