Standard Operating Procedure
- February 18, 2005 at 5:39 pm #38473
I am working on coming up with a Standard Operating Procedure form / Job sheet / Worker Instruction sheet to let employees understand the right methodology in building parts. In this regard, I would like to take a look at some sample forms to have a clear idea of the contents that go in it. If you could let me know of any resource (websites, e-books, online journals etc) that has more info on SOPs, that would be a big help.

CM:The company I work for has a CMS (Corporate Manual System) that would blow your socks off… volumes upon volumes of SOP. It seems to me that the only time it’s being referenced is when problems arise, which was not it is inteded for. We have now adopted a 5S approach, and there is lots of reading on 5S, which include ‘Standardize’. Our company is making progress in this area, but have a long way to go. One book on the subject of Standard Work you might want to consider is the Standard Work for the shop floor, (created by the Productivity Press Development Team) it’s more of a LEAN approach but well worth a look given your goal of SOP.

Hello SSG and Mehta:
Thanks for the info and sorry for getting back late. We would like to have a SOP or job sheet (as called in our organization) for every operator to standardize his/her job activity. This is being created in an effort to let employees know what is expected of them in their day to day activities. To keep it simple, we would like to use the SOP as a tool for building quality products. It will be a document that displays all necessary information that an operator must know when building a part. Some of the details that we are planning to include are:
a) Sequence of operations ; b)Tools required ; c) Quality checks ; d) Production rate at the workstation and so on.
It is not intended toward 5S implementation.
I hope this gives you more clarity. Further information is highly appreciated.
