Machine process sheet requirements for pill bottling operation

#1
Hello,
My team is implementing a solid dose packaging line in which we will fill bottles with our pills. Although we have a paper system, I think it would be great that every parameter in this operation is written down, in addition to the critical parameters.

Is recording all the parameters, even the non-critical ones, overboard?

Is there a recommended interval to record? We plan to run the process at least 12 hours a day.

It depends on what you're trying to achieve.

WRT sampling interval, I highly recommend Dr Wheeler's articles on control charts, in Quality Digest. They are well written and extremely readable, make a lot of practical sense yet don't sacrifice the statistical rigour.
