Standard Operating Template and writing

In order to write standard operating procedures you need to understand the task at hand and have at least one operator or technical person who can describe the procedure step by step. If the task is how to operate a certain piece of machinery, then the writing of the procedure must be done with input from the manufacturer. Also remember for simpler procedures or tasks it may be more convenient to write a One point lesson
