Definition: Process Analysis
Process Analysis deals with the break up of entire production cycle into phases or activities in a step-by-step manner from inputs, operations to outputs. This will make it easy for the management to take control of the overall process.
The latter could identify the deficiencies in a targeted activity or phase thereby identifying the bottleneck for the entire process. After the identification of bottleneck, it is the duty of the management to reduce the time taken for the bottleneck by improving the efficiency of that bottleneck.
In a way, the Process Analysis for any particular set-up acts as an identifier for inefficiency in a particular activity all along from input to output. Process analysis, therefore, reduces wastage and improves efficiency.
