Description

The Kansas City Division (KCD) produces nonnuclear components for nuclear weapons. The company has operated the plant for the US Department of Energy since 1949. Throughout the history of the plant, procedures were written to reflect the nuclear weapons industry best practices, and the facility built a reputation for producing high quality products. In 1991 a critical process team was asked to use Just In Time principles to determine a better way to administrate procedures.

Description

The Kansas City Division (KCD) produces nonnuclear components for nuclear weapons. The company has operated the plant for the US Department of Energy since 1949. Throughout the history of the plant, procedures were written to reflect the nuclear weapons industry best practices, and the facility built a reputation for producing high quality products. In 1991 a critical process team was asked to use Just In Time principles to determine a better way to administrate procedures. By 1992 the team was successful in implementing a full-time centralized procedure group to handle the creation, coordination, review, resolution, and publication of plant-wide administrative and operating procedures. In 1993 AlliedSignal was commissioned by its President and CEO Larry Bossidy to register all of the world-wide sites under the ISO 9000 quality standard. This presented a formidable challenge for the Kansas City Division. Though the independent third-party auditors conceded during a preassessment that the company did in fact build high quality products, the procedures and procedure system did not accurately reflect the current business practices. The purpose of this paper is to share information about the successful implementation of centralized procedure administration and the re-engineering of the procedure system, leading to successful ISO 9001 certification at AlliedSignal Inc., Kansas City Division.
