Abstract

Streamlining the statistical production system has become one of the important objectives in National Statistical Office of Thailand (NSO). The Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) has been applied as a reference model. GSBPM is used as a common process terminology, to provide a structure for documentation, to provide a structural basis for managing operational resources, better governance and to provide a framework for process quality assurance, for example. This paper presents progress of applying GSBPM in NSO. The Labour Force Survey is used as a pilot study to design business process map and workflow, to manage the project; resource allocation and project tracking. GSBPM is also applied to draft the Good Statistical Practice guideline as a manual for other institutions to produce high quality statistics.
