In order to get everyone in a company working of the “same page”, it is necessary to have standardized process flow charts in place. An example of a part of such a flow chart, created in Visio, is shown below.
- A further requirement is to have employees following the correct steps in the right sequence while performing job related tasks. By documenting the steps necessary to complete a task, preferably with photographs included, work instruction sheets can be posted at the relevant work stations. Work instructions can also be compiled in book format or be developed in video format. The option also exists to present work instructions in different languages.
