The Work Product

A complete report that reviews current operations, identifies sources of variability, recommends corrective actions, and suggests ancillary programs to further improve operational effectiveness.  Detailed narratives explain the often complex and interwoven functions that can result in PROFIT or LOSS.  Wherever practical, FPSC reports include comprehensive graphics to illustrate and pinpoint items of statistical significance.  Clear and unambiguous analyses, with recommendations, provide operational alternatives to counter negative findings and to capitalize on positive findings.
