Represented as “how to do it”, the operating procedure is used daily in the industry to describe the actions to be carried out to perform a task, an intervention, in short to produce. Each company has its own know-how and transfers it through operating methods or procedures.
In most cases, operating procedures are written on software such as word or Excel and are shared via intranet, e-mail or shared directories. The use of software to create them has many consequences on the efficiency and productivity of the company: costly, time consuming, difficult to access and quickly outdated…
Imagine your service technician on a site or your operator in his workstation carrying out a task for the first time and finding himself with no explicit and potentially outdated paper operating procedures, which can endanger production, intervention and even their safety.
Do you know who consults and how your operating procedures are consulted ?
Traceability plays an important role in the monitoring of operating procedures. It allows to see who consulted the operating procedure, how did he consult it and whether actions were carried out properly. Paper based operating procedures do not allow the proper monitoring of tasks performed or the collection of field data and lead to the loss of performance indicators.
