The duration and complexity of the technological audit procedures depends on the size of the enterprise and the level of tasks.
As a result of conducting a technological audit, weaknesses and bottlenecks in the production are revealed, technological risks are assessed and diagnostics of the enterprise technological health is carried out. At the same time, the enterprise receives a full description of the innovative potential and prospects of the innovative development, in the process of conducting a technological audit, there is often a selection of ideas for the production of new types of products or improving their quality, the identification of potentially competitive technologies and ways of their commercialization on the market.
Therefore, the main task of all interested parties is the development, use and implementation of the technology audit on a regular basis.
