Layered Process Audits

Layered process audits (LPAs) are a quality technique that focuses on observing and validating how products are made, rather than inspecting finished products. LPAs are not confined to the Quality Department, but involve all employees in the auditing process. Supervisors conduct frequent process audits in their own area, while higher-level managers conduct the same audits less frequently and over a broader range of areas. These audits also typically include integrated corrective and preventative actions taken either during, or, immediately after the audit.

Layered process audits (LPAs) help manufacturers and service providers take control of processes, reduce mistakes, and, improve both work quality and the bottom line.
