They are more difficult to implement through discipline than administrative human-centric processes (although some discipline is needed). It is better to focus on obtaining buy-in from the people affected by the processes through early involvement, communication and expectations management. It is a known fact that knowledge workers are reluctant to change their habits. Some say knowledge workers don't like following procedures because they feel it limits their creativity; but most of the time they will be happy to follow a procedure as long as they see value in it, perceiving that it helps them work better and produce a better process output.
Rice Huskers: These huskers remove the husk (outer covering) from the paddy rice during the processing. Paddy Separators: It makes the brown rice more efficient. Plano-Shifters: This makes the rice more uniform and give rice proper size and grading with a high speed. Color Sorters: These color sorters give a proper color to the rice and define its shade. The basic structure and the process followed in the rice milling industries and rice milling plants include: 1. Quantity of Rice (In Abundance) ; 2. Pre - Cleaning ; 3. Steaming ; 4. Drying ; 5. Packaging ; 6. Grading and Sorting ; 7. Polishing ; 8. Removal of Husk
It is extremely important to continuously improve knowledge processes, by creating an environment through which they can evolve. This can only be achieved through coordination of diverse disciplines such as knowledge management, change management, expectations management, etc... It is crucial to establish an adequate process context (the combination of technologies, procedures, people, etc... that support the processes). The process context must incorporate feedback mechanisms, change evaluation procedures, process improvement methods and techniques and must be flexible, in order to be able to incorporate enhancements in an agile but controlled way.
The key to process improvement is to clearly communicate process definitions (the way in which the company wants the processes to be carried out) to the people in charge of their execution (through training, process descriptions publication, etc...). The better process participants understand the process definition, the higher the probability that the process is carried out according to it. They are better implemented through obtaining buy-in than through imposing directives.
