Implementing business and manufacturing process reengineering is challenging and poses major issues. The dependence issues between process functions during the implementation phase are the main reason for the high failure rate of process reengineering. The incompetence in identifying the dependence makes existing business process reengineering approaches static for modern business and manufacturing process structures. This paper has implemented a new process reengineering approach called the Khan–Hassan–Butt (KHB) methodology that incorporates the process interdependence algorithm to identify the dependence issues. The KHB method is a hybrid process reengineering approach to identify dependence issues before implementing changes; thus significantly reducing the failure rate of implementing business process reengineering. The KHB method has been implemented in a Bangladesh fabric manufacturing facility. The mapping and verification of the process have been completed using the WITNESS Horizon 22.5 simulation package. The case study has investigated the fabric production process and identified the dependence issues between each function and suggested changes to optimize the process. The outcome has shown significant improvement in production output and process efficiency
