Detailed Process Performance Assessment, Gap Analysis, & Recommendations

It has become necessary for organizations to continuously improve and remain competitive therefore, facilities and operations must provide expectations in terms of operational and maintenance execution and excellence.

The findings will be the basis for the development of activities to close performance gaps, standardization, and improving the overall business processes.

The first step (as-is review) is to determine the adequacy and effectiveness of the existing Management Business Processes. The result shall then be used as the foundation for driving improvement changes towards industry proven and practical best practices for with the emphasis on sustainability and culture change.

Process Re-engineering

Every business process matters. And your organization can only reach its full potential when all your processes are as efficient and effective as they can be. That’s why your approach to process improvement – and achieving process excellence – are vital to gaining the advantage you need. Every improved process is progress.

Business processes are a series of logically related tasks performed to achieve a defined business outcome. Re-engineering emphasizes a holistic focus on business objectives and how processes related to them, encouraging full-scale review, modifications, and implementation of processes that best fit the organizations goals and objectives rationally and practically.

Storeroom Management/Supply Chain

An average MRO Storeroom has 58% of their materials never issued in over three years. Of the remaining 42% of “active” inventory, 60% of that is overstocked. Multiple reasons for this and not all materials over three years are obsolete.

With AMG International’s MRO Storeroom assessment, we strategically identify the truly obsolete materials taking up space, establish proper min/max levels, develop processes and procedures that tactically ensure we are managing the company assets, and define what is the right inventory levels to ensure we are managing risk by having the right parts at the right time in the right quantity to the right specifications.

  • A reduction in equipment downtime
  • An increase in availability
