SCM Sparks brought to you by IISCM
For a sound product or service delivery, an organization need to define, measure, analyze, improve and control its inputs, processes and outputs. Supplier certification is a tool to achieve this goal on the input side of an organization. Supplier certification enables an organization to align its suppliers with its quality, cost, flexibility and delivery requirements. A supplier certification may have 20 parameters. Some of these parameters fall under acceptance criteria and others under evaluation criteria. Acceptance criteria is like pass or fail and evaluation criteria is like ranking a supplier. Supplier certification is not a static one, but a dynamic one that constantly moves to a higher level to reflect continuous improvement.
Do you have a supplier certification program in your organization and what are all the acceptance and evaluation criteria?
