Quality Control    Supply Chain Management  

                                                                                           Mr. Packard will also present on Design Planning.

This presentation educates OEMs and suppliers alike. OEMs will learn how to collect data to create a more useful supplier scorecard without wasting precious human resources, and suppliers will learn how to interpret scorecards so that they understand where they need to improve. You will learn about common mistakes that frequently result in discrepancies between perceived excellence and a poor supplier score. You will also learn how scorecards can be ignored and even become a compliance liability.

Session Takeaways:

• What should be measured?
• How often should scorecards be issued?
• What’s an acceptable score?
• What should you do if you disagree with a score?
• What should you do if your supplier ignores a poor score?
