Documenting work processes: We secure knowhow for production. For smooth transition in case someone is filling in or personnel change in the production process. As a nice side effect is that it will optimise processes.
Knowhow in the production process is a vital asset in your company. Operating the machines, however, is not completed after having read the operating instructions. It is the knowledge of all particularities in the production process that ensures smooth production without downtimes in your company. Sometimes only a few employees know exactly how to handle the machines and production lines in question. Those staff members, who have been operating a machine or production line for a long time, are often not really aware of what they are doing quasi-automatically. But what happens when these employees drop out? The only remedy in that case is: Document work processes.
Documenting work processes to avoid downtimes
What is the safest way to operate a machine? What exactly do I need to operate, service, maintain the machine and for minor repairs? Where is the material stored? And so on. This knowledge seems simple enough on first sight and is therefore not documented in many companies. By word-of-mouth, details are passed on. This works fine until one day none of these employees can be reached to answer some simple questions. Documenting the work processes can prevent a shutdown of the total production in a company because of a case of minor ignorance.
Important knowledge for the production process
Our technical writers milk your team for everything that needs to be known for your production process. They talk to all pertinent departments, from the operating personnel to those in purchasing. As early as in the gathering of information stage, our teams can often detect processes that might be optimised ‒ which can then immediately be integrated into the documentation of processes and tasks.
