APICS 2018 – Three Tips For Ensuring Quality At Outsourced Suppliers
Thanks to everyone who attended “Three Tips For Ensuring Quality At Outsourced Suppliers” at the 2018 APICS conference in Chicago October 2nd. The topic drew a great crowd with lots of good input and questions from the attendees.
EXCERPT: Manufacturing your company’s products at outsourced suppliers, whether onshore or offshore, isn’t just about lowering costs. Managing the quality of output among your outsourced suppliers is critical and can greatly impact your bottom line, your operational efficiencies, and your organization’s credibility. This session presents an aggressive, comprehensive three-step program to accurately assess the level of quality risk at an outsourced supplier; create effective, quality documentation that will ensure expectations are met on both sides; and to set up metrics that will measure supplier performance and provide a benchmarking system to gauge future improvement. By employing these three steps in a comprehensive and integrated program, your organization can effectively ensure the quality among your network of outsourced suppliers.
