Splitting Paper Routing Job Worksheets

A

#1
Just started a job with a company that uses physical paper for routing medium (collecting work/inspection stamps etc) which is new to me.

I know standard practice for job lots (typically ~100 end items) is splitting off nonconformancing parts onto a new work sheet. There's a lot of attention recently around how best to process these forward as there is concern about messing up stamps, increased flow time of inventory while the rest of the lot waits, etc.

I am hoping for some suggestions from people on best practices other shops have used. (now or historically!)

Thanks for your time.

Not sure i follow you

why are you splitting Non conformance - they should be part of the lot that you splitted (..i.e. -01 lot or -02 lot).

Your splitting operation is missing additional instructions

every NCR should be traceable to the splitting job number where ever it occurred.

Sorry for being confusing.

The work instructions are being split to send the discrepant parts through rework. The rest of the lot is waiting for the reworked parts to "catch up".

I am asking if there were tips or best practices for maintaining split instructions as there have been problems with messed up stamps and just jagged work flow.

Thanks!

You can make a copy of the original outer and amend the original router to show the decreased quantity. The copy could have -01 added to the lot number as Dsanabria implied and have the rework operations can be added to it. When the rework is done, then they can be processed together again (or separately if you choose) and the routers will show records of what happened. If you need to know which ones were reworked, then keep them separate.
