Supplier evaluation

#1
Hello to all
my company uses basically standard raw materials and some dedicated components, nevertheless we do have to make supplier evaluation.
majorority of the suppliers are imposed by costummer.

currently our evaluation method is not simple and envolves:
if is iatf
if is 14001
Number of claims
delivery time
quantities
and some other points

altough this evaluation is not simple and does not add any value (imposed suppliers in its majoraty)

does anyone have a suggestion on how to have a simple but compliant to IATF method?

also. its very confusing who we have to evaluate. for example a transport company that is responsable for deliveries (truck companies). Trainning services, et

thanks in advance

I recommend reviewing the MAQMSR (minimum automotive quality management system requirements for sub-tier suppliers) available at the IATF web site.

In my experience its good to evaluate all suppliers, not just to comply with IATF, but to control the performance. Sometimes we only focus on the suppliers that have a direct impact on the product (raw material, surface treatments...) and we forget that if the trucks of the delivery company are very old, they may have problems and our products can end in a broken truck in the middle of nowhere... or maybe the calibration supplier that we use is very expensive compared with the competence...

So yes, you should evaluate these suppliers, but using a different questionaire.

Your supplier selection criteria may include:

“As mandated by customer”.

But guess who gets it in the neck if the nominated supplier screws up?

So, being able to advise your customer when their supplier does not meet your selection criteria may be important.

Naturally, your selection criteria will include service quality as well as product quality and value considerations.

Great question and great discussion. We are just starting our journey to IATF 16949, and like Mclaudio, most of our suppliers are customer-dictated, others are large raw material suppliers many times the size of our little family-owned enterprise. We do select a few suppliers ourselves. Being that we are a small company, with limited staff and resources, it does not make good business sense to expend effort to audit customer-dictated suppliers (that we can't change anyway) or large raw material suppliers for whom we are a minor player. We do monitor our supplier performance in terms of delivery and quality, and we report those results to our customers as may be applicable when the supplier is chosen by the customer. But we currently do no actual supplier auditing. My thought is we may wish to do some supplier survey for suppliers we choose ourselves. Likely these would generaly be done remotely as a "travel budget" would be very limited for us. Any thoughts along these lines? Any other small job shop companies out there and how are you handling this?

Do what makes sense for you and gives you value for your investment. Sometimes that's accomplished with a phone call, sometimes an emailed form, sometimes a visit. You're on the right track thinking about that makes good business sense.

Carry on....you're not a wayward son. ;)
