Wir sorgen für Risikominimierung in Ihren Lieferantenketten - Handschlag

Supplier Management

The competitiveness of your manufacturing company is increasingly influenced by the role of your suppliers in the ever more complex global supply chains. Success criteria of resilience such as cost efficiency, quality and security of supply can only be achieved by way of appropriately qualified suppliers as partners in the value chain.

For effective risk minimisation

Supplier Risk Management

Supplier risk management is a structured preventive method used to safeguard the quality of your supplier management. This topic is becoming ever more important due to the increasingly volatile sales and procurement markets and at the same time the growing complexity and diversity of products and components. To optimise the supply chain, we have developed a Supplier Performance & Risk Assessment, which specifically and efficiently shows you possible weak points in your supply chain before your production comes to a standstill.

The quick search for the 2nd source

Supplier Selection

In the field of risk assessment, in particular, the question often arises as to whether it is more costly to implement measures to develop existing suppliers or search for alternative suppliers. Based on jointly developed, cross-departmental requirements, you define the criteria for the approval of new suppliers.

Depending on size, scope and specialisation, the search is conducted conventionally or with AI support. (Link zu www.7Q1.de) The supplier selection takes place along the criteria set at the beginning in a joint decision-making process. We also ask the question: How digital are your suppliers? Because with automated processes, purchasing staff can evolve from administrative-operational buyers to structured commodity group managers and strategic negotiators. Digitally networked supply chains – locally and globally – ensure resource efficiency in the procurement process.

Success factors for optimised cooperation

Supplier Assessment and Development

We know from numerous projects which steps are necessary and which measures have proven in practice to raise supplier performance to the next level. After all, the primary focus of supplier development is to optimise the performance level of the supplier portfolio, adapt in line with changing conditions and improve cooperation with the supplier.

Suppliers are assessed using individually defined assessment criteria in respect of purchasing, quality and logistics. With regard to the role of suppliers as partners in development and the sustainability of the supply chain, aspects relating to innovation, risk, safety and the environment should also be taken into account. The supplier assessment system that is right for your company is the basis for the supplier audit and subsequently also supports your purchasing department in the continual supplier development. However, the assessment only becomes apparent when the derived measures have been discussed and agreed with the suppliers. The resulting solution proposals must be implemented and documented within a realistically defined period of time.

Our expertise for smooth supply chains

Operational Supplier Qualification

Despite extensive activities in supplier management, sudden performance disruptions in these supply chains occur time and again due to global, complex and interconnected supply chains. Thanks to our experience, we are ideally equipped to help manufacturing companies of various sizes quickly and competently in the event of imminent or already occurred supply failures. We know what is necessary and what has proven in practice to quickly bring supplier performance back to the required level.

By way of short-term “On-site” visits to critical suppliers, we find the weak points in the supply chain and create transparency with a supplier check specially developed by us, define the necessary optimisation measures and help with the operational implementation of such measures. Activities often focus on rapid implementation and ensuring the required quality Our services also include the development of production capacities if this serves to secure supply and is considered sensible or necessary for stability in the supply chain. Supply-related production stoppages are, therefore, a thing of the past.
