The performance of each process stage is evaluated not only against JAMCEM quality and process targets but also takes into account the types of materials used and the desired final product quality required. The quality audit also takes into consideration the impact upon the process in areas such as fuel and power consumption, gas bypass-use and environmental performance to assist the cement manufacturer improve the cost of production at the same time as improving quality performance.
