Risks in Processes
Almost every process involves risk. This can come about when a task is not executed properly or when a controlling step is forgotten. A typical risk within production processes occurs when the wrong item is taken out of stock and shipped out.
Risk management is an important part of Process Management. It makes sense to identify risks and their controls during process documentation in order to ensure process quality and the reduction of costs. This is made possible through the implementation of an internal controlling system which makes this identification possible at every process step. Every employee who performs the process is effectively involved in risk management.
