Hi eveyone,
I am trying to set-up a new purchasing organiasation/procedure in an automotive supplier company to manage new product development purchases. Currently the purchasing dept. is organised in commodities that are not too aligned with the necessities of new projects (timing, different commodities involved, etc...). Are there any guidelines or templates on this issue? I have checked through the various threads and ffound a lot of info on APQP mangement but very little regarding the purchasing counterparts.
Thanks for any suggestions.

APQP is well known approach in automotive supplier. it is the best method to have multidisciplinary approach. Purchasing shall participate in PR1 when there is the choice of (new) suppliers for raw materials, equipment and (eventual) services. You as an organization shall qualify in collaboration of the technical experts the new materials and suppliers for the new product introduction process. Supplier PPAP is key to be applied if you applied this procedure also towards your customers.:bigwave:

I strongly suggest you talk to your current customers about this. From both trade/sales side and engineering. I support our sales team quite a bit a product launches and to be honest I have found that most purchasing is optimized for what is best for the customer's company internally. That is fair they are the customer afterall, but dont forget that suppliers are a major stakeholder in this process.

I would really look at what outputs your purchasing department needs to get to suppliers so they can make quick decisions. If you want to reduce your quote times and design to launch times then the suppler relationship needs support. I can not tell you how many times I get a print a week before the RFQ (request for quote) due date that is missing key information needed to make a decision.

Another key thing to look at is supplier performance and how this is used during purchasing. At some level this information is going to be valuable to purchasing or at least it needs to be. I see fights all the time were Purchasing makes choices biased on cost when Production needs choices made on performance or quality. This is one of those Profound Knowledge areas.

Thanks for the valuable suggestions.
What I am really after is a flow chart or a checklist that best in class performers do.
Currently it looks as we are chasing open issues (missing drawings, specifications, PPAP documents, tooling descriptions) rather than working in an organoised way trying to do the correct things at the right time in order to avoid wasting time and energy.
Thanks anyway...I will keep searching
