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.
The panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss Supplier Quality Management and provide Best Practices and Practical Insights.
Key topics include:
Supplier Quality Management – Overview
Supplier Selection, Evaluation, and Monitoring
Supplier Quality Agreements and Contracts
Cost of Poor Supplier Quality (COPQ)
Quality Management Systems
Cost Recovery and Supplier Audit
Closed Loop Corrective Actions
Suppliers Quality Metrics
Supply Chain Pressures
