Development of an Audit Plan
Development of an Audit Plan for Repair Shops – Leading Asian Electronics Company
Task The task was to develop an audit plan that increases the quality of service and performance significantly and sustainably – always under consideration of country-specific, cultural and legal framework. In a second step, a performance analysis tool should be developed that measures the audit results. Then these data undergo an internal comparison so that optimization potential can be derived therefrom.
Approach First, the objective of the specific application areas, the technical conditions, as well as the performance and quality requirements to the service providers were defined. Based on these results, a database model with web frontend was developed for finance, operations and technology. By means of a correlation matrix it represents parameters and target figures and, by weighting the data, it merges them to a comparable result for all service partners. Together with the customers the audit concept has been tested intensively in a "pilot mode" and was implemented worldwide in a three-stage rollout. A total revenue growth of € 3.2 million could be realized.
The decisive success factors in this project were:
- the methods used: (quick-scan, potential analysis, value stream analysis)
- the development of a control solution creates transparency and convenience for the customer
- our extensive international experience and expertise in the field of process optimization and outsourcing
