Answer:
When I audit a production area, I want to see evidence of:

Operation parameters are defined, are monitored and the process is being controlled;
SOPs if defined, are available and are being followed;
Production and quality control records are being made;
Non-conforming products are removed, identified, corrected or destroyed;
Traceability is in place and working for machines, people and raw materials;
Machines and other equipment have preventive maintenance according to plan;
Operators are competent;
Cleaning processes are in place and validated
