Corrective Action Plan: How to Improve Your Processes?

What is a corrective action plan?

Digitize your corrective action plans and enhance your processes with Daxium-Air.

A corrective action plan is a document designed to address identified problems within a company to improve its operations and processes. The goal is to eliminate the causes of these problems to prevent their recurrence. To implement a corrective action plan, you must analyze each process to determine the root cause of the problem. It is important to collaborate with individuals working around the identified process to gather comprehensive information to assist in your efforts. Having an overall view will prevent overlooking details that may be crucial to assessing the extent of the damage.

The objective of a corrective action plan is to improve your processes, prevent the recurrence of similar issues, and ensure compliance with your company’s standards and requirements. These plans are commonly used in the fields of quality management, risk management, and regulatory compliance.

What are the steps to implement your corrective action plan?

1. Identify the problem
Identifying problems for implementing a corrective action plan is a crucial step in the continuous improvement of processes within a company. To effectively identify issues hindering smooth operations, it is essential to conduct a thorough analysis. This involves a meticulous examination of various workflows, gathering relevant data, and consulting key project stakeholders.

Make sure you have all the information to identify the root cause of the problem and the need for corrective action. To catalog information, you can use a solution like Daxium-Air, enabling you to list and centralize all your information from the field.

2. Find solution
Once you have identified the root causes of the problems, the next step is to find SMART solutions (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) to prevent problem recurrence. The implementation of these solutions must be closely monitored to ensure that each process and step follows the predefined plan.

3. Analyze the results
Using tools to create dashboards from your field data, such as Daxium-Air, can greatly facilitate this evaluation. By highlighting potential malfunction areas, managers can pinpoint specific areas requiring improvement. This proactive approach then allows the design of a targeted corrective action plan to resolve identified issues and optimize the efficiency of operational processes. By adopting a data-driven approach, companies can not only respond to current challenges but also establish a culture of continuous improvement to ensure long-term success.

Elements to include in your corrective action plan.

For your plan, you need to ask questions like:

  • What needs to be implemented to correct the problem?
  • Who is responsible for monitoring corrective actions?
  • How often should corrective actions be performed?
  • How to make documentation related to corrective actions available to employees?
  • Do these actions prevent the recurrence of the problem in the long term and in a sustainable manner?

Your corrective action plan must include certain elements to be clear and effective for your team. Most of the time, essential information is collected from a corrective action request form and then integrated into a corrective action report. They contain information such as:

  • An intervention number;
  • Date of problem identification;
  • Description of the problem;
  • Description of the corrective action to be taken;
  • Description justifying the need for corrective measures;
  • The person responsible for the action;
  • The scheduled date for correction;
  • Conclusion / feedback on the action taken.
