our offer of a Focused Improvement Process of Strategic / Critical Suppliers is the right answer to eliminate those inefficiencies that are effecting your results.

Your Problem:

There are Supplier that you cannot eliminate, due to many reasons:

  • For product or technological aspects that make them irreplaceable
  • For binding contracts
  • Because they are imposed by your Customers
  • Because it would cost too much to replace them with a new Supplier

But sometimes these Suppliers have not the quality level needed, these are some consequences:

  • Excessive costs of the product, through which bad suppliers cover their inefficiencies,
  • Delayed delivery due to problems of quality,
  • Waste and disturbance to production lines of their Customer,
  • Cost of Warrantees, only partially charged to suppliers
  • Loss of a customer due to problems caused by your Suppliers
