Reaching full potential

Are you getting the most out of your operation? Answering that question is sometimes more difficult than it should be. It demands an in-depth understanding of a variety of interconnected factors, and it requires specific equipment and industry expertise to evaluate. But once you’ve developed a clear picture of your operation and how to improve you, the potential benefits are undeniable — more throughput, reduced costs, improved health and sustainability, less downtime and better product quality, to name only a few.


Our operating procedure audits help you develop that picture, and then advise you on how best to act on it. Audits are performed by our experienced industry experts. These auditors take all of the important factors into account and work with you to ensure that your site achieves maximum, sustainable performance. And whether you want to get expert assistance for the entire site, or you are looking to add extra efficiency to a particular part of your operation, we have a solution that is right for you. We’ll identify any problem areas, give you a clear, detailed picture of current performance, and work with you to find possible opportunities going forward. 



Choose a standard operating procedure audit or one specifically tailored to your situation. Audits can survey your complete site or focus on a specific, individual part of your process.


Our operating procedure audit process typically follows a consistent workflow:

  • Dialogue
  • Scope definition

  • Audit preparation

  • Onsite audit

  • Audit report

  • Follow-up dialogue



After the audit has been completed, we’ll provide you with a full report including all of our findings, suggestions and recommendations. Key outcomes of our audits:

  • Identify and eliminate safety risks
  • Determine actions to avoid potential issues and downtime

  • Identify opportunities to increase process effectiveness

  • Increase and improve sustainable production

  • Increase energy efficiency

  • Improve precision and product quality
