Process schemes for understanding the process

One of the outcomes was that to improve the usefulness and ease of use of SAP process schemes were effective. Explaining the process to end users increased their understanding and importance of the system.

Process visualisation

Next, as part of the award winning SAP improvement team, Monito has developed several graphical representations of the maintenance process. More information on this project can be found at the portfolio and references section.

Motivation and performance increase

Visualising the process performance as closed the learning loop and revealed 'what is in it for me' to use the system. In the end both staff motivation and bottomline performance have increased.

Results

Building on this success, Monito has seen that there are many other opportunities to increase user motivation, process control and performance by business visualisation. Therefore it is now available as a specialised service on it's own.
