Process Analysis means the study of the overall process in factory (plant). It analyses every step of the manufacturing process and aims at improving the industrial operations. Process analysis aids in finding better methods of doing a job and this is achieved by eliminating unproductive and unnecessary elements of the process or through modified layout of facilities.
