What does Supplier Quality mean to me?
A great question…Supplier Quality revolves around a transparent and collaborative relationship between a customer and a supplier. A strong relationship which helps to ensure a particular product or service is fit for purpose, and compliant to all specifications and standards stated in the first stages of the supply chain process.
Starting at the initial selection stages, a suitable assessment of a potential supplier should be carried out, this will help identify key capabilities such as;
- available capacity
- implemented processes
- competency elements of the supplier.
Furthermore, quality will help to determine a competent supplier and also highlight any areas of improvement, which can be actioned to make their system more mature and align to the needs of their customers.
