If the purpose is for colloquial reference, say in a meeting, you may hear sayings like
- “Installation ready”
- “customer ready”
- “programming ready”
- “Foo ready” implies that all steps needed to get to step foo have been completed and Foo can commence.
If this is for a production process, then the only safe procedure is to have a paper or electronic work order attached to that serial number and a work culture that sticks to it. A good shop order process and a tight chain of custody between work cells should be the only proof that it’s ready for an installation or shipment.
- No amount of stickers,
- No ambiguous names,
- Labeled buckets will replace the history and pedigree provided by a work order with testing results, rework orders, and QA sign-offs attached to the back.
