  A simpler, better assignment system


April 2007
Originally published in CAP TODAY

Ed Finkel

The CAP's new automated inspector assignment system is an industry first—laboratories matched quantitatively with other labs, the result being a right and reliable fit. Here are its benefits:

  • Improves consistency and value of inspections.
  • Better matches inspection team labs’ characteristics to inspected lab needs.
  • Objectively selects and assigns team leaders.
  • Minimizes conflicts of interest.
  • Avoids making an assignment for the inspecting team during the team’s own inspection window.
  • Increases planning time with more timely assignments.
  • Includes team leader training status and reminder notifications.
