Information : Best Practices Web Page
When Raytheon Missile Systems Company (RMSC) decided to host a Best Manufacturing Practices survey, the company searched for a way to identify those practices which were potential candidates for presentation. The solution was to develop a web page as part of the company’s Intranet website. Here, candidate topics could be submitted, reviewed, and approved as survey presentations. The company expected approximately 30 practices to be submitted, but received more than 100 within a one-month period.
The Best Practices web page soon grew into an asset that proved useful beyond its intended purpose. The company also added other features, such as search engines, which expanded the capabilities of this database. The web page’s shell is written in HTML. Information is submitted in Microsoft Word, and then converted to the HTML format. The company is planning on using this web page for various functions including a training aid; a way to recognize employees and teams for superior accomplishments; and a clearinghouse to showcase RMSC’s capabilities, creativeness, and strengths since the Hughes merger.
The Best Practices web page enables RMSC to identify and collect noteworthy practices throughout the company. RMSC hopes to springboard this tool into a way of making breakthroughs in new and developing processes.
