I agree with your comment about the customer side.
However, note that it is the TS standard which 'eased back' on this requirement, not just some auditors. QS-9000 was very prescriptive in what had to be tracked. TS just generically states that premium freight needs to be tracked. A much easier requirement.
Other ideas for this?
Could it be enough to insert an item in Supplier Management Manual or procedure an item related to these eventual cost , causing a delay in our production and examine this in a purchasing/quality managerial review?
ANother idea could be also to have a voice in supplier evaluation score card, indicating this additional cost if any. What about?
In some organization it is 0% , because there is the procedure of consignment stock as well as enough raw materials in house that does not cause any priduction stop in case of a delay. This additional cost are alrealy paid by the suppliers.
