How To Review Your Existing Suppliers

How does a late shipment affect you?

  • First, does it result in production delays?
  • Second, does it result in unbudgeted overtime?
  • Finally, does it result in other expedite fees or expedited shipping costs?

What’s the true cost of quality to you?

  • Does poor quality delay your production schedule?
  • Does it consume other resources, such as engineering, that could be working on more productive tasks?
  • How are future sales affected by a quality failure in the field?

Won’t it cost more to outsource than to do it internally?

  • Do you have the proper equipment to machine the part internally?
  • Do you have hazardous location UL listings?
  • How is the quality with the internal process?
  • Does the quality cause more problems in subsequent operations?
  • If you consider lost labor time at all stages, what’s the true cost of the part?
  • Can your existing labor be better utilized doing something else?

What other value-added services do you get?

  • Are critical dimensions nominal, or just in tolerance?
  • Do you get suggestions on cost savings?
  • Before the parts are made, do you get print or tolerance errors pointed out?
  • Do you get help during initial design stages, to reduce cost and time?
