Abstract: The purpose of this paper aimed at showing the necessity of the implementation of the |model of perfection| including the identification and analysis of processes, as well as the creation and realisation of the optimising aims in accordance with the formalised Integrated Quality and Environmental Management System. Methodology used for the research has covered the integrated opinion of technological processes using the integrated risk ratio. One has shown the integrated assessment as a starting point to apply technological or organisational optimising solutions, in the first place – operational control determining the confirmation of the accordance of the key profiles with the set operational criterion. The analysis of processes controlled operationally has confirmed the decrease of the probability of presence of potential incompatibilities and the enlargement of the probability of their detection in auxiliary technologies in processes of steel wire production.
