Standard (ISO/TS 16949:2002) suggest other methods also. Please refer

"""The organization shall have a process to assure the quality of purchased product (see 7.4.3) utilizing one or more of the following methods:
- receipt of, and evaluation of, statistical data by the organization;
- receiving inspection and/or testing such as sampling based on performance;
- second or third party assessments or audits of suppliers sites, when coupled with records of acceptable quality performance;
- part evaluation by a designated laboratory;
- another method agreed with the customer

Hence supplier sysstem audit is one way.


First Time Right...
It depends on your internal SOP how you define to monitor your supplier performance. If your SOP requires you to perform a supplier audit, there is no way around. If you don't have an existing SOP, then you are free to use any of criteria from Standard (ISO/TS 16949:2002) to develop one.

Hope this helps.
