Sop updating procedure
New employees use an SOP to answer questions without having to interrupt supervisors to ask how an operation is performed.
The international quality standard ISO 9001 essentially requires the determination of processes (documented as standard operating procedures) used in any manufacturing process that could affect the quality of the product.
Lets take a look at an example of a policy and procedure to better understand SOP application.
SOPs are the instructions that denote how a policy is to be implemented within an organization – or in other words the procedure for the organizational policy. SOPs are the basis for our job descriptions, training measures, standards for operations, and employee accountability.Further application is with triage, when limited resources get used according to an assessment on ranking, urgence and staffing possibilities. The Quality Assurance Unit are individuals who are responsible for monitoring whether the study report and tests are meeting the SOP.SOPs can also provide employees with a reference to common business practices, activities, or tasks.The SOP guide becomes the living-breathing foundation that evolves with the organization.It becomes the backbone for the personality of the organization.
