Join a session comparing how far digitization in direct spend has really come.
If more than 50% of your spend and 100% of your quality depends on your direct suppliers…
How far have manufacturing companies come digitizing direct purchasing and supplier quality?
On paper direct purchasing and all its spend categories are run in an optimal way. Supplier qualification and classification is streamlined, contract management flawless and supplier development and sourcing strategies without glitches. Spend being completely under control. Reality however shows that also within direct purchasing data is often scattered. Making efficient Rfx processes, supplier collaboration, cost reduction, contract usage and quality follow up really hard. Not to mention challenges from VUCA markets (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity) – what insights do you have? During this session you can discuss ways of managing production material supply and supplier data centrally.
Learn about and discuss;
- How digitized and centrally accessible is your supply data today?
- In what ways are you streamlining Rfx processes, using eAuctions and awarding contracts? And what about supplier quality processes post award and post SOP?
- How can cross-functional award decisions be made more efficient?
- To what extent can you communicate supplier performance (not the least in the past years volatile markets) internally and externally and derive activities?
