Successful supplier management not only ensures capable processes at suppliers but also integrates logistics and quality processes such as planning and controlling into the overall organization of a company. Both systematic analysis of existing suppliers and the targeted selection of new suppliers contribute to the process of continuously optimizing the supplier network.
In order to be able to make fundamental decisions on the procurement strategy, such as depth of production, number, and location of material procurement sources or make-or-buy decisions, systematic documentation and analysis of all relevant factors is necessary. Finally, when selecting suitable suppliers, the expected delivery service level and the specified target costs must be adhered to. In this context, strategic sourcing and supplier management is useful in defining priorities for action and making informed decisions.
