Managing Infrastructure and Work
Environment Resources Procedure
Managing Infrastructure and Work Environment Resources involves
critical elements such as scheduled maintenance, safety, permits,
evacuation, hazardous materials, cleanrooms, & business continuity.
- Director of Applications Development ensures that
scheduled maintenance instructions for ABC
& critical equipment are documented & stored in ABC’s DCS
with Maintenance Instruction keywords in the name (e.g., “ABC Facility
Scheduled Maintenance Work Instruction”):
managing infrastructure, infrastructure management
Safety Manager ensures that a Safety
Audit Report is properly documented & stored in ABC’s DCS with
the name shown verbatim. Safety Manager & Site
Managers ensure that: infrastructure
- Base on manufacturer’s manual. managing infrastructure
equipment includes all test & measurement equipment used for product
acceptance such as:
tools and gauges used to measure physical dimensional parameters (jigs,
fixtures, mechanical hand tools, gauges, etc).
test equipment (instruments for measuring and recording AC or DC
voltage, AC or DC current, resistance, inductance, capacity, frequency,
- Physical tools and gauges used to check
physical parameters (mass, temperature, pressure, humidity, etc).
- Optical test equipment used to measure optical
parameters (jigs, fixtures, optical gauges, optical test stations, etc).
- Chemical analysis equipment (gas chromatographs, FTIR,
- The instructions cover
calibrations/measurements to be made and accuracy of the
- The instructions
cover labeling the critical equipment with last calibration date, who
performed it, and the next due date. If the label cannot be affixed
directly to the equipment, then affix the label to the equipment's case.
- The instructions cover providing the equipment owner a
calibration certificate when returning calibrated equipment. The
certificate includes: managing
- Equipment model & serial number
- Overall pass / fail status
- Calibration results with out-of-calibration results
- Calibration date
calibration due date
- Statement that nationally
recognized standards were used
instructions cover what to do if the critical equipment is found
out-of-calibration during scheduled maintenance and could have impacted
the previous product test and inspection results. managing infrastructure, infrastructure management
- If critical equipment is frequently found
out-of-calibration (i.e., 2 times in a row) during scheduled
maintenance, take corrective action (e.g., increase the frequency of
- If critical equipment is
seldom found out-of-calibration (i.e., passes 5 times in a row) during
scheduled maintenance, decrease the frequency of scheduled maintenance.
Safety Manager & Site Managers ensure that the
following are properly documented for each site & strategically
posted where the workers are likely to see & in ABC’s DCS:Site Manager maintains building leases, building
blueprints, and system drawings, schematics, etc (CDA, exhaust, dust
collection, cleanroom, heating, cooling, water, sewer, electrical,
computer networks, etc). Site Manager ensures Cleanroom
is properly monitored. Refer to the Cleanroom
Monitoring Work Instruction.Personnel must properly: managing infrastructurePersonnel should strive
to recover from disasters & continue business. Refer to the Recovering
from Disaster and Continuing Business Work Instruction.
- Site complies with all
local, government, city, & fire department regulations &
- the applicable permits & licenses
are obtained are posted at each site.
- the applicable MSDS’s
are posted at each site & in ABC’s DCS with MSDS keyword in the
name (e.g., “HF MSDS”).
- evacuation maps are properly
documented & strategically posted where the workers are likely to
see in every room, hallway, & bathroom, & in ABC’s DCS with
Evacuation Map keywords in the name (e.g., “ABC Austin Evacuation Map”).
The maps clearly define the place that occupants should assemble once
they’ve evacuated the building.
- at least 1 person per
shift is a certified ERT
- hazardous material spill control equipment
and materials are stored in a labeled cabinet near the area it would be
is stored and available in appropriate, labeled locations.
- ABC = Fake
name of company used in our procedures.
- DCS = Document
Control System for users to write, approve, publish, find, & read
- ERT = Emergency Response Team
= Fourier Transform Infra Red Spectroscopy
- MSDS =
Material Safety Data Sheet
- NMR = Nuclear Magnetic
- PPE = Personal Protective Equipment
