Supply Quality Management

Global supply requires a global supply quality platform.

The search for the most reliable, cost-effective and responsive global supply network has led many businesses to create highly complex, globally diverse supply partner ecosystems. To ensure you can deliver the right product at the right place at the right time with the right quality, your business may need to coordinate with dozens of supply partners, hundreds of direct material suppliers and thousands of indirect material sources worldwide.

The challenges in managing quality in today's diverse global supply network is daunting:

  • Quickly identifying supplier issues and compliants and producing impact assessments to sites, products and supply plans
  • Coordinating internal teams and external suppliers on an accurate, shared view of incident details
  • Establishing a systematic, proactive process to address issues rather than ad-hoc responses
  • Building scorecards to evaluate suppliers over time
  • Learning from events to improve supplier programs and adjust internal supply strategies
  • Monitoring supplier contract adherence
  • Enhancing standardization while managing change across the supplier ecosystem
  • Ensuring quality metrics are met by external manufacturing partners

With global markets continuing to expand, personalized medicine creating ever more diverse product portfolios and financial pressures driving requirements to investigate operations with a microscope, the challenge of supplier quality will grow not fade over time.
