Process mapping is the key to performance enhancement and information management.

Assess the impact of raw material price or quality changes on your business’s bottom line in real-time. IFS EOI helps you direct your energies towards those tasks that matter the most in achieving your strategic goals.
IFS EOI is about enterprise management and enterprise intelligence. ‘Visual Insight—Enterprise Wide’. It’s the ability to execute decisions supported by real-time ‘what-if’ analysis that drives your business and makes the difference, giving you a competitive edge. Instantly assess the impact of a proposed change in, for example, energy selling price on profitability and power generation break-even point.
The key to achieving operational excellence is to take a strategic approach. The transformational plan needs to be driven by strategic priorities with clear measurable metrics. Before rushing to implement the changes, it is important to look across the entire organization—end-to-end, not just at the disconnected parts. This holistic view will ensure that structural issues are addressed. Achieving operational excellence requires cross-organizational activities. Therefore buy-in and involvement of all stakeholders to the program is imperative.
All the key aspects and interdependencies required to manage your business in an integrated way are captured in the BizMap™ (see below). Populating the BizMap ensures that all areas of your organization–strategic, tactical and operational–become linked through a single platform. There is a direct link between strategic goals, results and operational execution. This increases business agility to respond to changing conditions—and provides the visibility, intelligence and actionable controls needed for operational intelligence across an enterprise.
Core to our approach is capturing your value chain directly in the software. All the key aspects and interdependencies required to manage your organization in an integrated way are included. The value chain provides the basis for the organizational single picture of truth.
