The Key to Consistent & Reliable Operation

What are SOPs and why are they important?

Standard operating procedures (SOPs) are a set of instructions that have been developed to define or standardize the exact steps to perform specific tasks. These steps have been found to provide consistent, repeatable results regardless of who is performing the task. Controlling costs and assuring quality are keys to being successful in any business. SOPs help accomplish both of these objectives.

Where are SOPs applied?

In manufacturing, SOPs should be in-place for:

  • Equipment startup and operation
  • Equipment set up and change over
  • Product assembly
  • Inventory tracking
  • Material ordering
  • Material receiving
  • Maintenance procedures
  • Material processing (e.g., mixing, batching)
  • Quality control
  • Any business or process step that needs to be controlled

If your plant does not have a good set of SOPs, WVMEP consultants can help you develop and implement throughout the operation. WVMEP has specialists in manufacturing, engineering, maintenance, safety and quality, so we can cover all areas of the business.
