Process Improvement

We help our clients maximize resources and project efficiency.

Business and government agencies alike are being called upon to create more value with limited resources. Customers want consistent, reliable, cost-effective goods and services. Those organizations that consistently focus on improving their process workflows gain a competitive advantage in meeting their customer's demands in the marketplace.

Management Solutions works with our clients to maximize project performance through process improvement. Our experts develop processes where none exist, and evaluate and improve upon existing ones that need improvement. We focus on reducing the amount of time required to execute tasks, so that our clients can maximize resources and execute their projects efficiently. The primary goal is simple – move the right numbers in the right direction.

Examples of our work

We have extensive experience helping our clients optimize processes.  Recent projects include:

  • Helping a DOE client reduce cycle times on facility work orders
  • Partnering with a hospital system to improve their patient capture process to capture lost revenues
  • Leading a process mapping effort on Electronic Data Management for a large healthcare client
  • Chartering a Lean/Six Sigma Process Improvement team with a DOE client to improve the data accuracy with which facility maintenance expenditures were being reported
