Process Optimization

The starting point for process optimization is a review of the company’s processes to establish opportunities for optimization and achieve company goals such as reducing costs, improving efficiency or maximizing output.

Prime uses the ‘Turtle Diagram’ model, which is used for anything from complex (entire company) change points to specific activities within a business unit to effectively identify and track optimization possibilities.

The model looks at inputs, the conversion process, and outputs. Once these aspects are understood for every business unit including purchasing, inbound logistics, stores, manufacturing, quality, warehousing, outbound logistics, sales, technical and support functions such as finance and HR, then a complete business plan is drawn up to identify the process improvement opportunities. Added to this information will be all the current and relevant audit findings and Cost of Quality data.
