Is it possible to show vendor evaluation on your Approved Vendor List?

I know that the Approved Vendor List is not a required document, but we have one. Technically, a document solely used for Vendor Evaluation isn't necessary either, just a record to show that you evaluated them.

I created my Approved Vendor List based closely off the example listed in the Post Attachments List from QualQueen. Sorry, can't post links yet, but to see the document just search for "approved vendor list" on the appropriate page--it's the only result that returns.

It seems to me that the column labeled "Method of Approval" along with the guidance along the bottom is an evaluation. Is this correct and would that satisfythe requirements in 7.4.1 of ISO 9001?

I understand that perhaps an evaluation is to occur every 6 months, year, whatever. If this is the case, you could simply add an effective date range to the Approvved Vendor List.

Am I thinking correctly or all this, or are my hopes and dreams of cutting one more form from the QMS just an illusion?

Yes you can. Whatever works for your organization is fine. The Standard does nor prescribe a particular format.

Good luck!

Re: Approved Vendor List contain vendor evaluation?

It all depends on your method of evaluation. The standard says you have to establish the criteria for evaluation. If your criteria is a periodic check, then that might work real good. However, I argue that you evaluate your suppliers every time you purchase. The evaluations are an ongoing thing. In that case, you may end up updating the list each day. Not too practical. But as Stijloor stated what ever works for your organization.

Or, keep your individual purchase data and do your "documented ratings on the approved vendor list" at whatever your time period is (we do this, with the provision to unapprove for cause at any time) Our criteria are spelled out in the Excel workbook, then the vendors, their "product classification" (i.e. oils and lubes, or alloys), rating frequencies, and their ratings are on one worksheet. You could break up your vendors on different worksheets as you see fit also.

As stated, do what works for you. Anything that can save you heartache is a good thing.

First of all I am not sure if this is posted in the correct place. I searched for similar content and this is where I was lead to. So, if I have posted this in the wrong spot I am sorry.

What I am really looking for is your :2cents: about maintaining an approved supplier list.

I work in a mid-sized automotive company. We are an assembly/system design company and our success and or failure depend largely on our suppliers. This is not just a statement to make everyone feel good about being a supplier to us. This is the fact. We will never be better than our poorest performing supplier.

We maintain monthly scorecards based on a suppliers actual performance. We have a Quality profile score (PPM and no. of issues combined and weighted 70 ppm, 30 no. of issues). In addition to the Quality profile we have on time, on quantity shipping. Process health, an ambiguous customer service and customer impact score. These are all weighted differently based on our needs. The ambiguous score is not significant enough to move a supplier from one "grade" to another.

On top of this we audit our suppliers either annually or bi-annually based on their performance to the above criteria. This assessment is similar in concept, not necessarily content to the auto manufacture system audits.

So this gets to my question and where I am looking for your :2cents:. At the end of the day so what?

Does this type of system lead to managing numbers only?

Does this type of system lead us to focus too much on the processes instead of product?

Lastly, any thoughts on how to integrate a more in-depth evaluation of the product into a system like this?
