"The company I started to work for, they have a traveler system. The question is: they attach the work instruction with the production card, every time they have an order. By the way I'm in charge of the Quality, I believe if we train that operator on his work instruction and documented we don't have to print the WI every time for every process. I'm also in charge of the ISO program that I'm putting together. buy the way your site has been so helpful with all the information I've been learning. Please let me know if this is necessary. I think if the traveler has the key points to the specific task then it should be good.”
First of all, thank you for your kind words. I'm glad to hear that our site has helped you.
Yes, you are right. ISO 9001:2015 does not require that practice followed by your organization. Please check clause 4.4.2. It is up to the organization to decide what is needed or not. In your position I would like to know why they do that, what was the reason behind that practice. Can be enlightening. One mor e thing, your idea of reinforcing training to avoid extra documentation in production is, I believe, a very good one.
