When companies do not have detailed, written
descriptions of their overall process flow, individual processes,
and work instructions, the consequences can be disastrous.
The resulting inconsistent work habits between employees
cause scrap, rework, increased process time, miscommunication,
and late deliveries as well as frustration among the workforce.
GEI process documentation services to help you through these
Our approach is to work closely with the employees
most directly involved with each process. Together, we review
the current practices, evaluate the process to eliminate
waste, develop an improved method using Good Manufacturing
Practices (GMPs), and document the new procedures. Measurements
of set-up time, lead-time, cycle time, downtime, productivity,
work-in-process, floor space, scrap, and travel distance
are made before and after the improvements. Each step of
the process is formally documented for approval and distribution
by the organization.
The documentation helps to stabilize and maintain
the process, identify areas where variation is occurring
(this is an opportunity for improvement), and support or
sustain your quality certification(s).
