Supply Chain Quality Management

Reduced returns, minimized recalls, improved profits

Business Challenge

Managing quality in an increasingly global supply chain brings many challenges alongside the numerous benefits. The total cost of poor quality on profitability needs to be managed. There is often a need to consolidate suppliers and there can be a lack of transparency by suppliers and factories leading to a difficulty in measuring supply chain performance. This leads to difficulty in understanding where to invest financial and human QA/QC resources to improve product and supplier performance, reduce returns and protect brand and profit.

Solution

Managing safety and quality risk within your supply chain is not about test and inspection reports; it’s about knowledge management and continual improvement. Preparation and planning are keys; carrying out a design review, factory assessment and risk assessment before production can greatly reduce the risk of non-compliant products being sold, returns, recalls, brand harm and more.

Validation of product conformity during production and post shipment through test and inspection program is critical driving data into our knowledge management platform, One Source, allowing you to data mine to identify:

* Supply chain performance
* Failures per product category
* Supplier’s performance against market averages * Insight into future sourcing strategies

This approach helps you to mitigate risks and stay ahead of regulatory and market developments through a continuous improvement approach, however, we recommend a phased implementation approach to validate that it works for your unique situation.
