Mill management involves the overall direction and leadership of the technical, financial, and economic aspects of the operation. Deficiencies in management usually result in problems related to plant efficiency and financial return. The following topics related to flour milling operations show some of the new tools that mill managers use to direct and control the operation. Mill management models covering decision making, costs, profit, and programs for hazard analysis and critical control points and for International Standards Organization certification should be used as a structure for the operation. An in-house mill-training program, including safety procedures and job duties, should be designed for all new mill personnel.
