Administrative process in the industry.

Blog: Flokzu

Historically, optimization efforts in the industry were focused on production processes. In general, all industries have their production processes optimized, measured, and controlled. But not every administrative process in the industry is optimized.

The support processes, or administrative processes, have been left aside and usually run in a suboptimal way. This implies more personnel to execute them (with the consequent increase of indirect costs). It also means that the customer, distributors, and suppliers’ service is slow. Improving these processes, by automating them with a BPM Suite, implies generating a legitimate competitive advantage.

Industry automation

We have seen in many of our clients that increasing the competitiveness of companies in the industrial sector is possible by automating their administrative processes.

In Flokzu, we have a large number of clients in the Industry sector. In most cases, the processes that have been automated have been the administrative ones. The results are very encouraging, and improvements in the efficiency of most processes have been generated. Fewer people are required to execute them. We will see below some concrete examples.

Administrative process in the industry automated with Flokzu Cloud BPM.

The design of new products

The design of new products is a complex administrative process in the industry, involving many steps and people from different areas, such as:

This process is classified as administrative since it is not a production process, although it clearly involves almost all areas of the company and a large number of steps. We have seen real BPMN diagrams of this process with more than 100 user tasks. Of course, many of them are executed in parallel (using inclusive gateways), while others are sequential.

The huge benefit of automating this process is to be able to speed up the design and launch of new products as much as possible. In this way, the company can better serve market needs and respond effectively to the competition. Both elements are vital for survival and growth.

The modification of existing products.

Related to the above process is the modification of existing products. This is another typical administrative process in the industry, which also requires a large number of steps, depending on the degree of modification of the product.

As with the processing of new products, it is possible to execute this process manually. In fact, many industries still do this, relying on emails and spreadsheets (such as MS Excel) to track the tasks involved. Anyone who has participated in a process under these conditions will agree that it is tedious, error-prone, and above all, very slow.

Being able to modify existing products, to meet market needs and changes in competitors is essential to remain competitive.

Occupational Health – HSHE

Another area where processes can be much more efficient is in HSHE – Health, Safety, Hygiene, and Environment. Here we have seen remarkable Flokzu instrumentations in processes such as:

Other administrative processes in industries
