Supplier integration is critical to success in today’s market
Increased complexity and compressed production cycles are driving products that are designed and validated by globally dispersed teams, including suppliers.
As your suppliers assume more responsibility for greater portions of your products, you need them to interact with people across your business, such as purchasing, engineering, compliance, quality, and manufacturing, to increase productivity and reduce the risk of recalls and non-compliance.
You also need to view suppliers as strategic partners in the design process. Improved collaboration with these suppliers should be the focus of every company.
