Supplier Evaluation

Methodology: supplier evaluation

Within 5 easy steps to a successful supplier evaluation: guideline to a step by step concept for a supplier evaluation according to your organizational and strategic structures. Software and methodology go hand in hand: SC-Evaluator

Within Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) regular performance evaluations of the supplier is being used increasingly as an important element.

An evaluation of the suppliers performance in the way of production site visits, questionnaires, product analyses and supplier audits should be a ‘must’ for each enterprise. The revision of the thus qualified enterprises should be performed regularly.

In spite of its great significance for procurement and general management and in spite of the application of modern technology in our business world, most enterprises perform their supplier evaluations manually via print copied questionnaires and Excel lists. The distribution, the surveillance and the collection of the results not only cause enormous efforts every year, but can also lead to many uncertainties and even discrepancies. The results of the questionnaires are drudgingly copied manually onto Excel sheets, accumulated and afterwards manually added together with indicators of the ERP system. Weeks or even months later the responsible persons get a report showing the status of their suppliers. Direct traceability is only possible by searching in different folders and storages or by asking the colleagues from the IT department.
