Coordinating supplier quality initiatives within a large device corporation proves challenging when decentralized divisions have historically operated as a silo, creating individual protocols for supplier oversight. Centralizing supplier quality at the corporate level allows companies to create a harmonized procedure for qualifying, monitoring and auditing hundreds to thousands of suppliers while also benefiting from greater leverage in pricing and negotiation of supplier contracts. Some companies have even assigned a singular supplier quality executive or small group to manage a particular set of component manufacturers, in an effort to increase trace-ability should a product issue arise and to streamline supplier communication and interaction.

  • Maximizing supplier quality efficiency throughout a large device company
  • Identifying overlap in supplier to streamline communication and oversight
  • A comprehensive infrastructure to manage supplier documentation
  • Establishing a harmonized Approved Supplier List
  • Integrating a supply base from an acquisition
