It is imperative that you keep your labeling concise, consistent, and up to date.

Going back to organization- each project, region, and AOI should be labeled in the same way across your company. The easier to understand and implement the better.

AOI status labels should be constantly updating as time passes. There are 7 status updates to go through for each working area.

  1. Unassigned
  2. Assigned
  3. In Progress
  4. Initial Review
  5. Final Review
  6. Complete
  7. On Hold

These are in place so your coworkers and management can keep a running tab on ongoing operations.
