Standardization is an essential tool for maintaining and improving quality in a company. A
standard is a written description of the best way to do a job, carry out an operation, or
complete a process. Its purpose is to ensure that jobs, operations and processes are always
carried out in the same way. It can also refer to the specifications of a product. The concept
of standardization appears in many different units. In this unit we will be dealing with
operation standards. 8.1 Introduce operation standards and work instructions
Draft and implement standards for all your company’s operations and procedures. Then
prepare work instructions, based on these standards, for employees to use in their jobs. To
introduce standards effectively in your company you will need to:
a. Be clear about the purpose of standards.
b. Recognise the range of items that may be included in a standard.
c. Decide on the procedures you will follow to introduce standards in your company.
d. Prepare work instructions from the standards. 8.2. Maintain the standards
When standards have been drafted and implemented, there are three important ongoing
actions to take:
a. Make sure that employees are following the standards.
b. Keep the standards up-to-date.
c. Use the standards to check that operations have been carried out correctly. 8.3. Educate and train your employees to follow the standards
Standardization will greatly improve quality in your company – but only if employees always
follow the standards. There are three reasons why they may not follow them:
a. They do not know them: this is a problem of knowledge.
b. They cannot do the operations correctly: this is a problem of skill.
c. They will not follow them: this is a problem of motivation. 8.4. Organize standards on a company-wide basis
When standards have been established for all the operations in a company, there will probably be a lot of
them. Some may easily be lost or duplicated or may contradict other standards. To avoid this, organise
standards carefully on a company-wide basis; classify them; decide who has the authority to establish,
revise, or withdraw them; and draw up rules to govern all this. 8.5. Assess and promote standardization
If standards are to make a lasting...
