Operations

All businesses have the same two things in common: people and process. While you go about convincing customers to buy your products or services, you must have a process to ensure that you can actually deliver.  As a matter of fact, if you don’t deliver, you may find yourself losing the customers you already have.

The Operations or process side of your business has a major impact on how well or poorly you perform.  Poorly organized companies require a lot of “hand holding” from management and generate excessive, unproductive waste of time, labor, and material.  Call it “negative profits”.

In today's world, you simply have to be consistent for your business to reach its full potential.

Controlling productionProcess keeps you consistent.  Processes tie together order entry, purchasing, production, shipping, accounting, HR and IT support.  Understanding and following documented processes directly affects:

  • Labor, material, delivery, and utility costs.
  • Schedule attainment and delivery schedules.
  • Product or service quality.
  • Worker morale.
  • Customer satisfaction.
  • Sales.
  • Customer retention.

As your company grows and customer requirements evolve, it is critical that you constantly seek ways to improve work flow.  Whether you are a manufacturing or service organization, it is not enough to have the proper tools, materials, and manpower in place.  You need a system for those three things to function smoothly.
