The control process is a four-step process that can be implemented in any (or all) of the various levels in an organization to ensure that the organization is adequately producing on all levels.
The good part is that anyone can use the control process. Even low-totem hourly employees are given an avenue to become engaged and take ownership in the organization. In addition, you also have the opportunity and ability to determine if something is working, like the new bottle lock you just started using for your bottle security.
Step One: set the performance standard. Your bottle locks must not interfere with your daily operations, but should still reduce and prevent inventory shrink.
Step Two: measure the performance. You should start to see an immediate reduction in theft and bottle locks should only take a fraction of your stocking time to utilize.
Step Three: evaluate performance. Time your employees to discover how long it takes to apply bottle locks. Quantify how much less product you are ordering to compensate for your inventory losses. There should be evidence in your product receipts after the first few months that your inventory costs are coming back in line as a result of your increased bottle security
Step Four: Take corrective action. Find out why the bottle lock is taking too long to apply if that is the case. Discover if additional training is needed or if your employees are not working efficiently enough to get the job done.
