Any given organization has a set of processes that gives rise to the organization’s products and services. Without these processes, the organization would simply cease to function and make profit. It is therefore very critical for the organization to maintain a certain level of awareness and control over its processes. Only an effective and periodic process control analysis can achieve this. If an organization cannot analyse how efficient and effective its process controls are then the organization is bound to falter in its obligations to its stakeholders.
The methods in process control analysis are mostly comparative. Control analyst can compare performance of certain systems with the performance in other organizations, between production centres or even between departments. These analytical methods should measure how well the organization’s process controls are.
The presentation of the analysis can be in the form of absolute numerals, percentages, charts and/or graphs. The presentation must be informative as well as concise. Process control systems that need frequent analysis include temperature control systems in factories, control valves in manufacturing centres, filters in processing plants and weight checkers in distribution outlets.
