Any other interesting information about the tool
The AMP 3 Process Map has won a number of awards including an internal award for Business Excellence. These internal company business awards are for projects or initiatives across three categories - Safety, Quality and Sustainability - which represent a significant contribution towards achievement of the group's values.
All members of the Capital Alliance team have to use the process.
Generally the process is a guide tool but it is picked up at internal audits where evidence may be asked to demonstrate that certain processes have been carried out and documented.
All sources of information are contained and referred to within the AMP3 process, including a reference to fulfil the Environmental Manual.
A key driver for the design and use of the Process Map is to achieve the International Standards of ISO 9000 (Quality), 14000 (environment) and 18000 (safety).
