Re: Missing Steps In Manual Operations
Something to consider: Add accountability, with more granulation in the flow inspection points. Have two lines for sign-off in the work order line: one for the operator, one for the verifier (usually a charge-hand or QC inspector). This will identify where the failure is occurring and the methods that aren't working.
You didn't mention if the part goes from Weld to another area for further processing, or if it goes directly to the customer. If it's the latter, then the final inspection step isn't effective or doesn't exist. If it's the former, the group receiving the part should always be verifying the previous step. If it hasn't been done, the part is simply returned to the previous cell for completion.
