Re: Procedure vs. Work Instruction (WI) - What is the difference?

Cari - I would agree. That pretty much sums up what I was taught in a certified auditor training course.

Re: Procedure vs. Work Instruction (WI) - What is the difference?

Symantecs at best.......You can slice the differences 12 different ways and come back to, basically, the same conclusion. I think it is safe to say that both are designed to ensure process repeatability.

What is the difference between procedure and work instruction?
The term procedure and Work instruction carry the same meaning. But as the general industry follows, Procedures are set or instructions specified to carry out an activity that could be administrative, Managerial or technical also.

Work instructions seems to be a technical term and is more of a shop floor document.

Re: Procedure vs. Work Instruction (WI) - What is the difference?

In the "old" days we had procedures that covered the ISO standard's requirements in full but not in every detail. For example, document control required that documents be reviewed and approved by authorized functions who had access to pertinent background information on which to base their decisions. So the procedures, we called then level 2 because the manual was level 1, would pretty much echo what the standard required and would say something like "Documents are reviewed and approved by authorized functions who have access to pertinent information on which to base their decisions". The procedure might say that the Management Rep. for the QMS approves all level 2 procedures, departmental managers approve all level 3 work instructions, etc. But the details, like how they approve, electronically in a database with workflow capabilities, on paper with a serial routing, etc., the details, would be in the work instruction. So that is why work instructions change more frequently than do procedures and hat is also why they are used more ... they are where the "rubber hits the road".

In my experience, there's an alternative viewpoint:-

Procedure and Work instruction are very different - the procedure is more about the process of part of the business - how to process a PO from receipt of a requisition to a finished PO to a supplier. A work instruction is very task specific, filling out a purchasing requisition.
