What is a Cleaning process?
Cleaning processes follow up a sequence that allows workplaces to be organized and free of unnecessary tools, materials, equipment, or even dirtiness that can delay operations execution flow, or put in danger the work of the team.
Every worker is responsible for their own workplace cleaning and tidying. Additionally, field operators must also identify major cleaning activities that can be done by themselves.
How is a Cleaning process implemented?
In order to maintain a clean factory, checklists are established in papersheets with step-by-step guides to follow. The guides include information about the best practices to tidy up the section, sweep the floor, put away unecessary equipment, among others.
To maximize the efficiency of the cleaning process, schedules must be determined and implemented with information regarding the frequency of cleaning,. The worker responsible for the cleaning process must be defined, as well as the actions and precautions to be taken during the process.
To be effective, cleaning should be done “as they go”, meaning each person is responsible for detecting needs and acting on it. However, to ensure maximum efficiency of the operations, it should be complemented with a planned and organized schedule.
How Industry 4.0 can influence the process?
More organized workplaces often translate into an increase in productivity. With the correct checklists, cleaning is ensured which will ultimately translate into improved satisfaction, productivity, and safety in the workplace. In the long-term, this will show its results regarding costs associated with replacing or repairing equipment and time spent with deeper cleaning processes.
