SatiStar’s process expertise enables rapid analysis and improvement of all business processes across the entire value chain. Our consultants have experience that ranges from something as simple as redesign of a single process in a single functional area to major reengineering of all of the strategic, value-added processes within the organization.

It’s usually the Social part of the transformation that causes difficulty in any major improvement project. Our approach is to work with a team of your employees to identify and implement potential improvements. This ensures complete buy-in at all levels of the organization.


Comparing your company’s processes to those of your competitors is often referred to as benchmarking. All this does is compare you to others who think like your people. SatiStar’s enormous breadth of experience enables you to compare yourselves to companies “outside the box”. It is in looking at companies that are in completely different industry or service sectors that new ideas may emerge.
Benchmarking is a method for organizations to compare their processes, practices and performance with others.
There are two major approaches to benchmarking:

  • Process Benchmarking
  • Performance Benchmarking

Business Performance Analysis

An effective performance measurement and reporting system can accelerate your organization toward the achievement of desired business results.
SatiStar can provide your employees, executive management, owners, or even your board of directors with a detailed analysis of overall business performance to facilitate strategic business decision-making.

Business Process Reengineering (BPR)

As your organization grows and evolves, people are so busy doing their jobs that they don’t take the time to critically examine and optimize their business processes. The result often manifests as customer and employee frustration, excessive cycle times, lost profits, excess scrap, etc.
SatiStar’s 5 step BPR methodology reduces overall process cycle time, reduces waste and rework, streamlines and simplifies work and greatly increases overall customer satisfaction.

Computerized Process Simulation

Sometimes it’s hard to envision the effect of changes on the output of business process. It can be prohibitively expensive (not to mention risky) to make changes to your business processes.
Simulating the processes allows you to see effect of changes, without having to actually make those changes to your processes. We have the ability to create computer-based process simulation models that you can use to maximize your overall confidence with the proposed changes.

Functional Reengineering

Sometimes all you need to do is to implement a performance breakthrough in one of your functional departments, rather than across all of the business operations. This is often an excellent first step.

Integrated Supply Chain

The integrated supply chain strives to simplify, standardize and synchronize supply chain processes, and align relationships to achieve efficiency, effectiveness, customer satisfaction and lowest total cost.
Supply Chain Management optimizes all of the steps of the process from your suppliers through your operations to your customers.

Integrated Value Chain

Value Chain Management strives to simplify, standardize and synchronize supply chain processes, and align relationships to achieve efficiency, effectiveness, customer satisfaction and lowest total cost.
Value Chain Management takes Supply Chain Management to a new level and includes integrated strategic alignment and deployment(ISAD), your suppliers’ suppliers, your customers’ customers, business process reengineering (BPR), international standards (ISO9001), and increased customer value.

Process Flow Diagramming / Process Mapping

SatiStar’s consultants are process experts. Everything we do begins with an in-depth examination of how work is performed by creating detailed process flow diagrams. The process flow diagrams (PFDs) can then be used for training purposes, documentation, process discipline, process troubleshooting, process improvement and breakthrough, ISO9000, and more.

Process Innovation

The first step is to examine your current state processes. The next step is to envision a new future state business process. Our consultants bring their many years of experience with processes across a very wide variety of industries to facilitate this part of the improvement process. This ensures that the changes are not merely evolutionary, but are revolutionary in nature.

Value Stream Mapping and Analysis (VSM)

A key part of any Lean implementation is a profound understanding of the overall value-adding components of your fulfillment processes. This helps quickly identify where major opportunities exist to reduce overall cycle time, reduce inventory, reduce overall operational costs and increase customer responsiveness.


SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
