Hello all, My supervisor has tasked me with creating a new Disaster Recovery Procedure for our QMS, we have grown in leaps and bounds since it was updated last and is almost not applicable anymore. Anyways what I've decided to start with is identifying the equipment which is critical to maintaining our manufacturing operations, and the problem is that no one has kept a list of what equipment we have added or lost since the original writing of the DRP. What I've also found is there is no uniform way the equipment has been labeled in the past. Somethings are labeled with simple letter/number code, others have names named after basketball players of past and others are named after movie characters. Now these are fun for chatting in the manufacturing facility, "Hey guys I'm going to be running with Shaq today," but when referencing a procedure, recording Shaq as the piece of equipment used just doesn't sit right in my head. But when trying to explain to management why I want to change the labeling to something more systematic like XXX-0000 I can't find the exact reasoning to make the change other than knowing what the next thing to label the new piece of equipment should be. I guess what I'm looking for is what reason would there be to change the labeling of all the equipment to a standardized numbering scheme and does anyone have any guidance in how to write and implement a proper Equipment Management Procedure. We don't have one that I can seem to locate.
