Procedure (term)

 A procedure is an established method of accomplishing a task, usually with steps that are performed in a prescribed order. It can be a set of a document written to support a “Policy Directive”. A Procedure is designed to describe Who, What, Where, When, and Why by means of establishing corporate accountability in support of the implementation of a “policy”. The “How” is further documented by each organizational unit in the form of “Work Instructions” which aims to further support a procedure by providing greater detail. For example, a manufacturing facility established a policy that all overtime shall be approved.
