Process optimization

During process optimisation, we focus on the processes within a company – free of hierarchies and functions. We observe the existing and defined process flow.

The primary objectives:

Comparison of the objectives with the current in-house situation
Set- up/optimisation of individual reporting systems
Achieve the goal of the company vision
Determine the pre-requisites
Identify room for manoeuvre
Identify the hazard potential
Prioritise a plan of action

The result of such a process analysis is an insight into the value-adding business processes in their entirety and with regard to the aspects:

Product-related operations, e.g. product life-cycle
Order-related operations:
   - complexity/cost relation
   - prioritisation according to the value-added aspects
   - required quality criteria
   - integration of third-party companies in the order process
   - implementation of operational business maxims

Project -related operations
Productivity-related observations, e.g. with the objective: “Best in Class”

General evaluation criteria for processes are performance, stability, the appropriateness of the use of resources and the EFQM model.

Your benefits from process optimisation: 

Focus on the value added core processes

Identification of non-value-added maintenance and idle times

- from stocks and overproduction
- resource availability of absent definitions within existing interfaces
- of control activities to be minimised
- of minimisation potential in throughput times

Your business benefits:

greater competitiveness
increased customer loyalty
efficient resource management

Reasons for the need to optimise company-specific processes:

External factors – competition, production life cycles, leaps in technology
Internal factors – cost offsets, flatter organisational structures, customer orientation, information needs of management.
