The process control is the assessment of the overall effectiveness of an intended business process across the organization. Process control is often limited to a specific process and its associated sub-processes. The process is controlled by sampling the statistics in various units of the organization. Statistical surveys covering all employees who carry out the activities and statistical data on the irregularities and exceptions are tried to be obtained. The final articles can be adapted to the whole company. In this way, the results of policy and process effectiveness are easily accessible because the inspection is carried out simultaneously on non-decentralized units and this method allows for easier assessment of systematic issues. Process inspections are considered as the most effective inspection approach to assuring management organizations.
The Steps of Process Inspections
1- Before installation
A) Pre award of LET(lift, escalator, travelator) sub-contract
- Pre qualification of sub-contractors

- Full or technical tender evaluation of tender returns
- Assist with presentation to the project board
B) Post award of LET sub-contract
- Support approval from client.
- Coordination of technical information between LET sub-contractor and Project board internal departments (architect, structural engineer, MEP engineer, Fire Engineer, etc..
- Review and approval of shop drawings.
2- During installation
A) Manufacturing Phase
- Inspections for quality assurance during manufacturing of sub-assemblies and major components.
- FAT (Factory Acceptance Test)
- Coordinate delivery schedule.
- Preparation and approval of delivery method statements.
B) Site installation
- Stage inspections during installation
- Preparation and approval of ITCP(inspection, testing & commissioning plan)
- Final testing commissioning prior to third party inspection
3- Analysis of cost and efficiency in existing units
- Classification of elevators by brand model and creation of an inventory
- Advantages, disadvantages and determination of chronic problems of elevators based on brand model
- Determining who is responsible for the shortcomings identified as the result of the annual periodic inspection and conducting the revision / modernization analyzes
- Assessment of maintenance processes
