Process optimization

is used in companies to continuously improve the efficiency of business, production and development processes as well as the use of the resources required for this - today mainly with the help of software tools.
Process optimization, long considered a task of quality management, has now become part of a comprehensive, integrated process management system for companies and institutions. Process thinking and process optimization as the basis for an effective business management approach are now indispensable for modern business management in order to be able to compete regionally, nationally and internationally.
The basis is the process-oriented consideration of operational processes. To do this, hierarchical “departmental thinking” must be abandoned and instead process chains must be defined across departments (process organization versus structural organization).
