Improving your restaurant’s bottom line one step at a time with process monitoring.


Process monitoring for restaurants

It’s not enough to just open a restaurant and hope for the best. You need to constantly be on your toes, looking for ways to improve your bottom line. Process monitoring is one of those tools that can help you do this with ease. It allows you to spot when things go wrong in real-time so you can fix them before they snowball into larger problems. With process monitoring, your restaurant will be running smoothly and making more money!

Process monitoring, which can include process optimization and general analytical tracking, might seem like an unnecessary step for some. But in reality, it’s one of the most important tasks you can do to ensure your restaurant is running efficiently as possible. Your key processes need to be defined, measured and analyzed regularly to make sure they’re working properly.

Measure, analyze & improve

Can you measure the quality of your food? How about how fast it was delivered to your table? What about how many people in your party ordered off the menu as opposed to being on a diet? These are just a few things that you can measure, monitor, and analyze before creating an optimized process plan for our restaurant. Why is this important?

It’s easy to get caught up in all the minutiae of running a restaurant. This can lead to complacency which can have negative consequences down the line like when customers come back with complaints or issues they may not have had otherwise. With the right process monitoring and analysis software, you can constantly keep tabs on every detail from seating arrangements to wait time between ordering and serving; without manually measuring or micromanaging your business.

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”

Process Control Charts


Statistical process control charts are one of the most important tools used in manufacturing to monitor and identify trends or variations. As customer preference move towards online ordering, pressure in the kitchen has increased.

Statistical process control charts are one of the most important tools used in manufacturing to monitor processes and identify trends or variations. As customer preference move towards online ordering, pressure in the kitchen has increased and errors have increased as well. Process monitoring and control charts can help identify these trends to fix the problem before it escalates. Processes need to be defined, measured, and analyzed regularly to make sure they’re working properly.

Continuous Improvement 

The analysis of process variations and trending patterns is the basis for creating new ideas to improve quality. By monitoring your process, you can identify those problems before they arise, and make incremental changes that will impact your work environment while maintaining quality.

Correlating the process attributes to your process attributes will help you to identify trends and make adjustments for your process. Process monitoring may not only be beneficial to the bottom line, but also in creating a culture of continuous improvement.

 

Automating the process


“If you get in the way of a process, you are not measuring.” – Dr. Deming

Using technology to automate the measurement and monitoring process is the key to a successful implementation strategy. As a result, we must keep in mind the impact additional tasks would have on chefs and employees who must complete them. It is also vital to make sure implementation of process monitoring doesn’t get in the way of the chef or impact the actual process itself.

Therefore, it’s best to choose software solutions that incorporate them into the workflow itself and don’t add additional work. This will also ensure that the data captured is accurate and consistent every time.
