Industrial resilience audit

Diagnoses why processes are experiencing disruption and helps identify short-term fixes and define longer term plans to develop more flexible production processes.

The Industrial Resilience Audit identifies:

  • Problems or disruptions that cause processes to underperform.
  • How frequently processes suffer from the identified disruptions.
  • The effect or impact of the disruptions on process performance.
  • The resilience capabilities that processes have for handling the disruptions.


The output of the Industrial Resilience Audit can help:

Short-term internal activities

  • Prioritise improvements to current processes (process capabilities, operational adherence & stability, material specifications.)
  • Identify the requirement for new process capabilities to better cater for disruptions.

Long-term internal/external activities

  • Focus the development of next generation processes.
  • Providing flexible production capabilities, for new products, using new technologies, with changing business demands.
