Document Philosophy

PYXIS Services are unique in their pursuit of complete document management. Simplicity and repeatability are keys to its success.

We focus skills where they are best suited. We do not initially improve a process or task, only document the baseline agreed method process.

Our belief is that from a solid platform improvements can be built upon and measured. Facilitated by experienced Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) an efficient document review process creates a Continuous Improvement Loop that keeps them current and encourages them to become an active reference document.

The tutorials we create become tools for implementing the improvement methodology that will ensure the documents are in fact used, and the material contained in them is communicated regularly to the entire workforce.

The documentation becomes an important integral part of every task and is seen as value adding by the end users.
