Making Things Better
Process improvement means making things better for your company, by finding out what causes things to happen (and not happen) in the inputs, actions, and outputs of your business.
You can then use this knowledge to reduce variations and remove activities that contribute no value to your product, service, or competitiveness.
Whether it’s writing a work order, ordering a part, performing a specific service for your customer, or taking payment, the list of business processes can be huge. It ranges from simple, less significant processes, to complex and extremely important ones that can have a direct impact on your profitability.
We use a methodical, systematic approach to analyse how your processes can be improved, considering such factors as…
- Machines and technology
Our 14-point method allows you to focus on reducing or eliminating waste – of money, time, people, materials, and opportunities. You can then have jobs done cheaper, quicker, easier, safer, and more competitively.
Your requirements will determine and drive how we work. We can undertake all aspects of the project and analysis, but we’ll only do those that are required and agreed with you.
