Question Work Instruction Content or Sequence Changes and Operation Numbering

After a work instruction has been developed and the operations have been named and numbered and frozen, and you find that process runs better in a different sequence. Do the operation numbers have to stay the same even though they will no longer, numerically, be in order?

Re: Work Instruction Content or Sequence Changes and Operation Numbering

To me logic dictates that the numbering be revised to reflect the proper sequence. I always think about a new hire coming in as a litmus test. Also - re: "runs better" - not sure if you mean quality of output or cycle time in standard work - assuring optimization for both of those factors may be important and another reason to revise the work instruction with accurate numbering.

Runs better as in output and cycle-time and improved on-time delivery.
