04 Apr Supplier Quality Management and Improvement
A Fortune 100 company needed a supplier quality management program for a group of 50 North American suppliers of electronic components but had minimal internal resources to perform this function.
Partner with an outside firm to manage and improve supplier quality.
eMRI consultants developed a multi-year supplier development program, performed the program management function, provided auditor training, performed audits of suppliers, and delivered training to the supply base through the client. Results included a reduction in the size of the supply base, by as much as 30%. Late deliveries were reduced by 60-70% depending on the respective product line and product non-conformities were reduced by 70% with overall improvement in supplier quality.
