What do you mean by 'skipped'? In many cases ->Yes - by substituting training. But you have to weigh things like complexity of assembly/operation and such. You may have operator set-up and you may have a specific group or person who only does set-ups - you have to think about over all issues like these in the scheme of your systems. Can you cite an instance where training can effectively replace documentation?

Also see:

This was from an ISO audit but there are a number of basic principles at work in both.

Templates from others might prove more harmful and expensive in the long run than helpful. You have to look at YOUR company and do what YOUR business and processes require.

--> Thanks in advance. Sincerely Rodolfo Enriquez.

Everything is weighed.....more training/less paper....But the value needs to be considered. Maybe the paper is in the training document. Sometimes we spend all together too much time trying to find a way around doing something, when the value is going through the steps to get it done. I find charting a process tells a tale of its own, and always adds value somewhere..... digital pictures and clips can be inserted..hyperlinks to more detailed status and so on.....jump in and try one, and see what it does for you and everyone involved. I can almost guarantee a 'light' will go on somewhere.
