Re: Purchasing Process map

Kris:

To help with potential feedback, how a level are you looking for? Are you interested in the procurement process which goes from supplier development to purchasing to expediting to receiving, etc. or are you looking for purchasing which is needs identification to purchase requisition to approval, etc.?

Re: Purchasing Process map

The problem is, there is no 'standard' way of operating a purchasing process. I can gladly show an example of how purchasing is done in some companies but that is unlikely to match yours. If you can outline the main steps you take in purchasing we can help turn that into a process map.

Sorry folks about the lack of detail. We are a very small company, I started here less than a month ago and I am putting in a QMS from scratch. The company has been in business for 7 years, we are trying to become ISO certified. I would like to use process maps instead of writing procedures with the exception of the required 6. The management staff consists of the 2 owners(who handle almost everything), an owners wife who acts as admin. asst., HR and payroll, a salesman who doesn't work at our facility and myself. Everyone here is wearing more than a couple of different hats and they don't truly understand what documentation of a QMS entails. They are all for having a QMS they just don't articulate thier responsibilities very well.

Just a basic Purchasing Process Map is what I'm looking for. I have already done the required 6 proc. with P.M.'s in them so I have a format in place. I am just not quite sure how to structure one for purchasing.

I hope I didn't confuse you any further.

Thanks,

Kris

Short & to the point.

1. Issue & sign P.O.
2. Fax/mail/call to supplier
3. Verify supplier received P.O.
4. Product received, inspected, stored

Output - 0 supplier issues affecting customer/production

Hello,

Valeri got to the point, but, I thought I should add something else as well. Process maps are often designed to be used as procedures; just not using as many words.

As many people here can attest, some people just understand things better when in a graphical form; hence, the use of process maps, flowcharts, and pictures.

I have had the absolute pleasure to tour the Honda plant in Alliston, Ontario. ALL of the instructions on the line used pictures liberally! It obviously works since the Honda Civic is continuously one of the top quality (and top selling in Canada) cars on the road!

Just keep that in mind.

I have attached the process map that is part of our Purchasing process documents. Not sure it will be much help to you but it may give you some ideas for your own.

Thanks everyone I just needed some basic's to help get me stared, instead of "I call and place an order" which is basically the way it was presented to me at my company.

Somer-I am in a very small town called Delton, just north of Kalamazoo.
