Re: Procedures necessary for for things such as the floor cleaner or weigh scale
Calibration of the piece weight scale is critical. A good idea is to weight several counts of the parts to make sure you have a good average weight. We used a piece weight scale for screws for kd items and it is amazing how much of a difference there is between lots of 50!
tool grinders, and air compressors need to be addressed in PM. Do not need procedures or at least I did not. We created a PM check list for PM for each machine ( daily , monthly, yearly etc) and had a full time person that did all PM
I've mentioned a number of times (though perhaps not here) that I don't have a procedure for operating doors or windows...the operation of a door is critical to my business (getting in the building to work)...but darned if I'm gonna write that document.
Operation of Floor polisher...no way.
Operation of Air compressor...no way (though both are in scheduled PM)
What parts to check and lube...yes, those are documented for PM.
Our scale (balance) document gives boundaries on how many decimals to trust, and which scales to use for which weight ranges...but it doesn't actually say anything like "turn it on, tare it, put something on it"...
Measuring Archimedes density using a balance?...yup, got that procedure.
