Hi To All Covers,

This may not be the correct forum; but I continue to see Supplier Quality Assurance, Supplier Development and Field Quality Engineering position titles seemingly interchangably.

Are these classification essentially one in the same or does anyone know if or what the destinction is between these titles.

I have come across descriptions from ..."responsible for continuous process improvement utilizing Lean Six Sigma within the supplier"....to merely "periodic supplier visits, performance of periodic audits/score cards etc".

Thank you for your input.

Regards,
Marty

Re: Supplier Quality Assurance Definition

Marty,

I think it really depends on the culture of the organization. Some may want you to simply assess and make recommendations to the supplier whereas others may have a more integrated relationship with their suppliers. I doubt there is really a standardized definition for these positions other than the fact that there is involvement with the supplier.
