SOP Builder

To help you write your SOPs, you can use the SOP Builder. SOP Builder is not a part of this website. If you choose to download it, the program and all data will reside entirely on your personal computer. (The SOP Builder does not work on Mac computers.)

SOP Builder Download & Installation

  1. Begin downloading the SOP Builder program to your computer.
  2. After you click the link, you will be asked to "Run" or "Save" the program on your computer.
    1. If you choose to run the file, the file to be downloaded will place itself in your temp folder while it extracts itself and it will (1) create a new folder C:SOPBuilder on your computer and (2) load that folder with new files needed to run that program and to provide you with instructions about using the program. When you have completed these actions, you may launch the new program by clicking on the file SOPBuilder.exe in the new folder (C:SOPBuilder). The program does not automatically place an icon on your computer's desktop so you may want to create a shortcut.
    2. If you choose to save the file, it will download to a folder on your computer by default or by your choice. Often, that folder will be download or temp. Be sure to observe where it is being saved because you will need to go to that folder, open it and then double click the file named SOPbuilder.exe. These actions will cause the new program to extract itself from that main file and it will (1) create a new folder C:SOPBuilder on your computer and (2) load that folder with new files needed to run that program and to provide you with instructions about using the program. When you have completed these actions, you may launch the new program by clicking on the file SOPBuilder.exe in the new folder (C:SOPBuilder). The program doesn't automatically place an icon on your computer's desktop so you may want to create a shortcut.

Download/Install Help

If you cannot download or install the program using these instructions, please call 231-724-4406. Once you have the program installed there are help files to assist with the various program functions. 

There is also a contact tab in the program so that you will be able to get further assistance when needed. By default, you will see Allegan County in a drop down list on the contact page. Click the arrow to the right hand side of that text and scroll to select Muskegon County.

Reinstalling Caution

Reinstalling the SOP Builder program will cause all previous SOPs you created to be lost.
