Background of the supplier management process

No businesses can exist completely in isolation without support and assistance from some form of suppliers. Suppliers can come in many types, supplying all sorts of products of their own, from intellectual support through to bespoke high level designed and manufactured products.

Nearly all businesses will need to be able to work with and manage their suppliers in order to successfully deliver products and projects.

The supplier management process

The supplier management process given in this training workshop describes the methods and deliverables that should be followed by a business to ensure their suppliers carry out the tasks required at the right time. The deliverables required to manage suppliers are aligned to the activities and gateways described in the product development process.

In essence these deliverables are targeted at ensuring the supplier follows a process that dovetails into, and supports the requirements of the product development process. There is little point in a business operating a product delivery process internally to ensure their products are delivered to the highest standards if any bought in parts and materials are not to the same high standard.

The process starts from product concept and continues through the product development activities and ends when the product is in full scale production.

The supplier management training course

This one day on-site supplier management training course explains how to successfully operate the supplier management process. The intent of this and all our training courses is not to tell or show the trainees what to do but to impart the capability to perform the required tasks. There is no limit to the number of trainees but we strongly recommend no more than 5 individuals attend per course. We find that if there are any more than this the training becomes ineffective and wasteful.

This course is targeted at the product design engineers, the manufacturing engineers and the programme managers delivering new products. This training course is given in English. All our courses are designed to be informal and are based around a series of discussions and practical exercises.
