How Bossard Process Analysis Works
Our goal in the process analysis process is to learn your needs and to work out the best suitable solution to show potential cost savings in your company. We will analyze and support your logistics process by defining a solution that is tailored to your exact needs.
First, Bossard experts will come onsite and walk through your entire factory. They will go through your production so that they can fully understand the workflow and analyze the entire process.
Next, they will interview the relevant people in the various departments of your company: purchasing, logistics, planning, even the workers.
Then, Bossard can draw insights that are supplemented by the experts’ experience on best practice when it comes to C-parts flow. We will make suggestions on how to improve processes and create value for your company.
Here are some examples of what Bossard experts will look for as they analyze your processes:
- Time-consuming steps within the process that can be shortened (e.g. material flow through various work stations)
- Unnecessary steps within the process flow that can be eliminated
- Processes that can be structured better
- Inter-departmental communication that can be improved (e.g. at goods pickup points)
- Areas of over or under-documentation (too many booking steps and printouts OR not enough useful data)
