The Pipe Group has a program in place called Process Audits. Pacific States just completed a process audit at their facility this week. The process audits work like this – Plant Managers and other members of the Management/Engineering team visit the pipe production facilities and review their processes and work instructions.
They then use this process as a tool to share best practices among the pipe group and look for opportunities for improvement. This process also helps to build relationships among the pipe group team and encourages the sharing of ideas.
