Work Location
  • Engineers will be given responsibility for an area each shift, and this will not be exclusive but will be their prime location for work.
  • The prime location will be where they will spend the majority of the shift, particularly for the first 3 hours of the shift start-up. This will mean they have a direct influence on the efficiency of this location and will be measured against the same K.P.I's.

Paperwork Requirements
  • Each engineer will have a TIME SHEET that needs to be filled out daily; this will log what jobs they have been assigned to and how long they have spent on each of the tasks.
  • When an engineer has had to take parts from the stores then this will be documented on the sheets provided to say what the part is, who is the manufacturer, and how many have been used. As the stores develop the engineers will be required to use the new system and always follow the procedure.
  • If there are jobs that are new to the engineer, then this task needs to be risk assessed, and using the books provided fill out a risk assessment form for the task to be taken on.
  • Engineers are to fill in the job handover sheet every time. This will always be completed on the line and signed off by the responsible production operative in the area. This is a mandatory requirement and will link to the time and audit sheets.
  • All paperwork will be put into each engineer's document holder at the end of their shift so this can be collected.

  • At shift changeover, there will be a meeting which all the shift engineers will attend to pass on information to the shift that has just started about what has happened, what they have dealt with, what they have left, and any other information that is important to the other members of the shift and the incoming shift. The shift handover book will also always be filled in with all jobs undertaken throughout the shift.
  • A whiteboard is available in the workshop for Engineers to record information for their colleagues to help in the smooth running of the department and to record outstanding tasks that are either waiting for parts or the opportunity to carry out.

There is a Calendar showing shift patterns and what each engineer prime work location will be on any particular day.
