Supplier Management Features
And Change Management
CQ Supplier Management helps organizations to streamline supplier onboarding activities so that new vendors, contractors, and suppliers can start supplying goods and services more quickly. Gone are the days of collaborating primarily over email – an intuitive supplier portal helps to facilitate collaboration between buyers and suppliers.
CQ’s Supplier Management provides buyers with a way to manage the SCAR process. Alerts are issued to suppliers about downward trends so they can respond and address issues quickly. This feature enables suppliers to quickly take the necessary corrective actions, manage risk, and prevent recurrence.
Incoming Inspections And
Certificate Of Analysis
CQ Supplier Management allows suppliers to submit their inspection data to buyers in order to receive approval to release a shipment. This ensures that buyers receive raw materials that are within specification and avoid delays in production. This approach also helps to reduce the Cost of Quality by reducing rework when returning nonconforming shipments to suppliers and the need for frequent manual incoming inspections.
PPAP (Production Part
CQ Supplier Deviation (SDR) provides a complete closed-loop process for managing temporary supplier deviations for received goods, helping reduce data errors that potentially could lead to a recall in the market. Suppliers can electronically submit their deviation request details, the reason for the change and any corrective actions performed. Buyers can then easily review the request, go through the approval process and propose a final disposition (Use As Is, Rework, Scrap, SCAR, etc.). Alerts such as acknowledgments and approvals or rejections are automatically sent to the supplier for follow-up.
