Please Help! Standard Audit Checklist for New Suppliers

Dear all,

I am facing a peculiar situation with my group companies.
We are a tier-1 automotive supplier group & we need to source molded, pressed & rubber parts. As of now we have a common new supplier audit questionnaire & we are now in the process of scaling up our outsourcing activities.
We are now thinking that this may not be sufficient in terms of mapping suppliers capabilites / improvement points & we need to have customised auditing for each type of commodity. I also prepared a questionnaire for injection molding.

My question is do you have such questionnaires ? If so have you reaped any benefits? ANd finally could anyone share with me questionnaires prepared focussing on pressed parts & rubber.

Thank you

Let Me Help You Re: Standard Audit Checklist for New Suppliers

Are you going to do a system wide audit of this supplier? If so, I'd recommend that that will not be as effective as looking - specifically - at the processes that relate to your products. In effect, you should 'test' their systems by having them take you through the process, from when they quote your jobs to shipping it out. That will, INHO, give you a better feel for their strengths and weaknesses.
Thanks to AndyN for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

Re: Standard Audit Checklist for New Suppliers

Also, there have been several other threads talking about the best practices and checklists for supplier audits in the past few weeks, you might use the search function (in yellow in the navigation bar at the top of the page). I'm sure you'll find some timely tips there.

Andy
Thank you for your suggestion. I am thinking of a hybrid such as defining the must have items & make seperate audit items for the commodity specific intricacies.

Steelmaiden,
Thank you for your suggestion. I will definintely do it.

Re: Standard Audit Checklist for New Suppliers

My suggestion would be to get VDA 6.3 (process audit) at : http://webshop.vda.de/QMC/index.php?cPath=23_24
It gives you the opportunity to ask a series of questions ( specially for your product ) on each of the process steps at your supplier's site.


Best regards,

Antoine

Re: Standard Audit Checklist for New Suppliers

Valeri San,

Thank you very much. We have a similar checklist, but we have configured it for points / marks . Your checklist makes the NG items more visual.
