Cooperating in the search for improvement.
We want to achieve top performance in cooperation with our suppliers. The annual supplier evaluation tells us whether we are on the right track.
We have used an evaluation system for many years to help us to minimize sources of error and monitor the continuous development of our suppliers. Our supplier evaluation focuses not only on quality and delivery reliability but also includes other criteria such as cooperation, cost management, and innovative capabilities.
Supplier evaluation is used to rank suppliers and classify them. "Preferred suppliers" are suppliers who have achieved above-average results in evaluations for several years in a row. If the desired performance fails to meet our expectations, we agree with you on improvement measures and accompany you along the development process.
A team consisting of purchasers and other colleagues from specialist departments, such as design or production, evaluates all suppliers who jointly account for 95 % of the procurement volume. The information accrued over the year is analyzed in order to obtain an overall picture of suppliers.
