Supplier scorecards provide a comparative look at suppliers and a heightened understanding of internal challenges within your organizations. Orthopaedic device companies rely on scorecards to monitor the performance of suppliers that are an extension of their own operations. The right elements in the scorecard (e.g. weighted factors of quality, delivery, cost, responsiveness, SCAR, CAPA, etc.) will strengthen your confidence, control and relationship with your suppliers while simultaneously providing essential indicators to drive positive change.
