You know about your process - we know about process control. We promise to learn from you what you really want, so that we can deliver what you need. And we train your people people to make the most of your investment.

Attendance at Meetings

Minutes of meetings
Meetings are often needed for software analysts to understand user needs and to explain options and decisions that need to be made.
High quality records of these discussions provide the basis for good specifications. We can produce them as a searchable database. Specifically they will cover Actions, Agreements and Issues
Some meetings just waste a lot of time. Time is a precious resource.

We can also carry out Audits of your control system and it's documentation, including Validation Source code reviews.

We particularly specialise in Batch Processes. A presentation on this can be found at:-
