Should those associates that work in a area or department write their own work instructions (owner)? A couple associates in my department that are new think that our area should re-write all work instructions. I totally disagree. We are not the experts they are. I have worked in quality for 18 years and I believe that a non-owner person of that work instruction will add no value. My area audits the departments that they want to write the work instructions for. Several persons are determined to change this.
