KC Event Synopsis
Supplier Quality Management (SQM) is becoming an important business practice as more companies are out-sourcing manufacturing, distribution, shipping, and sales across the globe. Aside from the implications of failure to comply with a myriad of regulations, failure of SQM can lead to litigation, added costs, and harmed reputation among other problems such as product adulteration and mis-branding. However, there is a trade-off between managing supplier quality and costs. As such, SQ managers need to be aware of the risks and benefits of the relationship with suppliers as a whole.

Key topics include:
Supplier Quality Management – Overview
Supplier Selection, Evaluation, and Monitoring
Supplier Quality Agreements and Contracts
