Production teams are not continuously present in the facility. Still they are expected to be fully informed of its status, changed situations and work in progress. Production team leaders, management and process technicians are also dependent on shift handover information.
Working with the Production Communication (shift handover) best practice creates clarity and uniformity in the communication between shifts and other disciplines. Roles, responsibilities and communication lines are clearly defined.
You do not have to reinvent the wheel but will have a benchmark that allows you to quickly and effectively improve your shift handover process. To a wide variety of plants it has brought improved performance and trust, between teams, their managers and the rest of the organization, leading to measurable results in both safety and efficiency.
