Process Audit Vs Product AuditHello friends,
Managing the process and product is very important in the manufacturing sector. We need to see that our process is running correctly, and check the product to see if it is making right. This is why we audit both process and product. Now we will understand about product audit and process audit.
Process Audit:In process audit, we verify whether our process is meeting the given working standard, and all parameters. In this, we verify that our process or the work that we had decided, we would do our work with work instruction or criteria.
If the process parameter is not correct then output will not correct. So basically, we check those parameters in the process audit. Like work instruction, control plan. These are the reference documents which is shows that process parameter is in control or not.
- Audit should be made in all manufacturing process over each three years calendar periods.
- Using customer specific approaches else determine the approach to be used.
- Audit shall be complete with covering all shifts.
- Audit of effective implementation of the process, risk analysis (such as PFMEA), control plan, and associated documents.
You will understand this hopefully.
