A Quick Action Rev allows us to deliver solutions when we have a situation that is out of its standards. It also helps us to strengthen our standard procedures and provides insights about frequency of problems.
A Quick Action has three stages: Before, After, and Review.
In the Before stage, we define what is the problem and the type of situation: 5S's, Security Hazard, Equipment Abnormalities and Lesson Learned. If you want to learn more about situation type, check out this article.
In the After stage, we document our solution.
In the Review Stage, we discuss economic impacts and benefits of the Quick Action.
You should create a Quick Action when you encounter a problem such as equipment failure. Quick Actions are perfect when you can identify the issue and immediately fix it to can continue working.
