Chapter Eight

Release Process

Abstract

Releasing a part, drawing, specification, assembly, or product from one company phase to the next. Determine what the optimum phases are for your company—name and define them. Prepare a phase release chart for your phases. Establish a streamlined work flow diagram for the process. Assure that standards are written for the rules and work flow process. Review/establish measurements and metrics for this process. Include face-to-face team meetings in the process with all involved and committed (chickens and pigs). Allow for one author and one acceptor to sign each document. Require item release in lead time.
