1.3. QM Supply
The QM Supply module steers all the test processes from incoming goods to clearance of production and supports the continuous improvement process with suppliers. Intelligent methods dynamically provide an optimal quality of supply and product with the simultaneous optimization of the inspection effort–from inspecting every item up to Skip-to-Stock.
The extensive rating of suppliers considers not only their quality of supplies but also volume and time compliance. Both are subjective criteria of analysis. For example, the exactness of the colour and the complaints from the shop floor are included in the subsequent reporting. All departments can access the analysis which supports purchasing, quality management and logistics in their day to day activities.
“We have various suppliers for one and the same material. The supplier evaluation mechanism gives us well-founded information about the quality, the quantity and the delivery performance provided by our suppliers. This information is used in audits, negotiations as well as in contract placing.”
