Process Optimisation

About Process optimization

Process optimization is a tool to help industry achieve designated objectives such as higher returns, increased through-put or better yields. It is a systematic approach to improving performance that begins with an audit or review of the company’s processes, which highlights where there are opportunities for improvement.

Using the principles of root-cause analysis, Prime assists companies to eliminate process failures, product defects or technical inefficiencies and achieve their stated objectives.

Control systems are often overlooked in the process of introducing a new product. Prime can act as an external, independent authority that co-ordinates the activities of the development team, production department and quality control department to ensure the process of producing that product meets specifications.
