Procedure Re-engineering restructures their organizations operational and administrative documents by focusing on the ground-up approach of their business processes. Re-engineering emphasizes on a holistic perspective on multiple program objectives that encourage full-scale recreation of the set of processes rather than iterative optimization of individual procedures. This four-step process is applied to the entire Procedure Set.
1. Equipment Documentation
The System Documentation phase provides a systematic methodology to identifying stakeholders and gathering supporting material for the creation of procedures. The GUIDE Methodology provides a repeatable and measurable approach to the development of a Procedure Program Portfolio for Operations Organization that supports common objectives and communicates those as Descriptions. By gathering consensus from applicable and relevant stakeholders at the beginning of the process, accountability is set early through collaborative and supported conversation.
2. Systems Alignment
The Process Alignment phase builds and assesses the information and provides the foundation for the design documents. By assessing and prioritizing the functions of the activity as well as the familiarity the personnel has with its performance a type of target document is determined. Instructions and procedures are also grouped by program and authority as defined in the numbering and naming standards.
3. Procedure Design
This process design phase builds the design content for the documents from vendor and PGE descriptions of Equipment and Operations using the guidance and templates provided by the program to create induvial procedures.
4. Procedure Assessment
Procedure Assessments are performed on completeness of the procedures, documentation, records, and the effectiveness of the performance practitioners who are using the program but implementing at a plant level. This assessment relates to the program philosophy, values, and principles; essential functions; and core activities specified in the practice profiles. The Procedure Assessment correlates actions with intended outcomes creating a measurable metric. This can be done repeatedly in an ad hoc manner or as part of a routine revision cycle according to the Procedure Quality Assurance Plan.
