Improve Production Quality with Layered Process Audits
Explore best practices in optimizing and implementing an LPA program.
Manufacturers are under pressure to produce better and faster products at reduced cost. In order to improve the manufacturing process, many manufacturers have implemented a Layered Process Audit (LPA) program.
LPA is a practice that involves the entire organization in the quality control process rather than isolating it to a single department. LPA is popular because of its ease of implementation and use, and the fact that it brings management and shop floor employees together to verify that processes are being done right the first time.
The concept of LPA is simple—analyze the manufacturing processes that are most at risk for failure and check them daily.
