Purchasing Procedure - Review appreciated



The company for the last 5 years, is manufacturing only prototypes, and the numbers of suppliers was huge, in order to narrow the the number of controls and measurements for the suppliers, the company made this classification. But we don't have any formal process or instruction to prove this selection.

They use the definition;
Key Supplier: Those supplier with high volume of production or expensive parts Included Customer Specified Supplier.

Do you think that we have to identify in better manner the classification of such suppliers?
Thank you for your feedback.

what about criticality of the supplier to the customer, are they the sole supplier, are they the custoemrs preferred supplier, is there only one or two suppleirs to choose from, are long lead times involved, are they a much bigger organsiation than you are. These things effet the degree of approval, surviellance etc.
