At ComplianceQuest, we have a ringside view of how technology is not only becoming an enabler of supply chain management but also disrupting trends and practices. Think of IoT, industrial robotics, other embedded systems on the shop floor, data-driven inventory optimization, digital transformation, automation and more.
Moreover, while technology can and will affect several changes, the Supply Chain Management (SCM) leaders in the future are going to be working with an increasing number of global suppliers. This will require them to be agile and have a better understanding of their suppliers, their capabilities, performance measurements, and the resulting risks while also keeping an eye on the demand and their inventory.
The first step to a long-lasting relationship is ensuring your organization has a robust supplier qualification and onboarding process. Once supplier partnerships are forged, the next step is to automate the entire process of supplier management with a deep focus on supplier quality. Finally, it is imperative to build a robust supplier performance management workflow, with the support of the right digital tools.
In this e-book, we deep dive into the following topics:
- A 6-step approach to design and implement a robust supplier qualification and onboarding process, that is customized for your context.
- How an enterprise has to embrace automation to build a resilient supply chain that is focused on quality, continuous improvement, and innovation.
