Step 2 Process Audit
In step 2, we go much deeper into each of your processes in an effort to design a detailed blueprint of how your company’s processes should be functioning and chart a series of process improvements that project the increase in productivity and ultimately profits.
This more in-depth business management analysis charts a series of improvements, which are then used as a guide in the development of a Comprehensive Action Plan.
By agreeing to move forward beyond the System Scan, the company’s management team and Pro-B will delve deep into your company’s operational practices. The goal of the Process Audit is to uncover beginning- to-end problems, organizational structure, people, and the overall gamut of processes in your company that direct the flow of all activity. Together, we’ll establish benchmarks towards the more efficient use of people, time, and materials. During the final phase of the Process Audit, Pro-B will produce a Comprehensive Action Plan that will outline recommendations to be followed as next steps.
A couple of many discoveries in the Process Audit was that the firm had promoted their most technically savvy people into a role as manager, without any management, supervisory experience or training. Consequently, when the firm entered into a highly competitive situation, the manager could not drive strategy implementation within his manufacturing facility. He did not measure nor manage schedules, costs or production flow. Because of the lack of inter-discipline communication to his team an unproductive culture was created. A bi-product of this resulted in significant delays and extra costs due to NCR issues and equipment failures.
