Supplier management

The objective is the development of a top-quality portfolio of suppliers.

The following items are important for supplier management:

  • the assessment and choice of suppliers
  • the development of the suppliers' performance level

For a successful supplier management we support the following items:

  1. unsolicited application by suppliers
  2. supplier systematics (company-internal recording of supplier data)
  3. performance gap analysis (deficits in product quality, delivery times, costs, technology)
  4. a supplier assessment system tailored to the interests of the individual corporate units
  5. Integration of producers, retailers and service providers
  6. an internet connection for exchanging ordering, delivery, logistics and invoicing data
  7. Process integration
  8. Supplier communication

The strategic aspect of assessing suppliers comprises their preselection for the purpose of avoiding entering into negotiations with all the suppliers in the subsequent procurement process. The operative aspect consists of a completely pragmatic assessment of the suppliers - this includes their prices, terms of payment, adherence to delivery quantity and dates as well as their innovative ability. The basis for the assessment also includes standardised notice of defect forms, incoming goods control and product assessments by the user.

In the process, the classification can be undertaken in rough categories such as "exclusive supplier", "favoured supplier", "would-be supplier" and "discontinued supplier".
