Course Overview

The decisions on where to purchase components, raw materials, manufacturing, and testing equipment, and even consulting services must be well-informed and documented through a vendor qualification process. The results of poor purchasing decisions can lead to situations that impact product quality, regulatory compliance, company profits, and even the company’s reputation.

Suppliers and vendors play a vital role in the company’s success. Having a formalised system in place to track and evaluate supplier and vendor performance is essential to the smooth operation and profitability of the company. Successful companies embrace their suppliers and vendors, viewing them as partners in helping to grow the business; therefore, we must ensure we use the right processes and criteria to select our suppliers.

It will also adopt a systematic approach to demonstrate the optimal methods for enhancing vendor performance and ensuring contract compliance.
