Want the secret to optimizing supplier performance? This free webinar explains how to establish your supplier qualification and mitigation objectives based on risk.

The result: you can create a way to categorize and prioritize your internal resources, focus on both new and existing suppliers and revolutionize your entire supplier management program.

Tim Fischer, principal partner at Great Solutions, will share how to optimize supplier performance at every stage. He’ll unpack the latest FDA requirements for supplier quality assurance (SQA) and the key components you must include in your supplier risk management program, from supplier onboarding onward.

These include supplier-related risk assessment (how to identify, mitigate and control risk factors and product impact), qualification audits (how to ensure your audit team is equipped to quantify, not just qualify, supplier risk), quality agreements (how to mitigate supplier risk within the context of the contract), data collection (how to collect, sort and classify all key information based on multiple supplier risk categories) and trend monitoring (how to watch for and use trend analysis to detect supplier risk concerns before there is a failure).

Webinar Takeaways:

  • Select suppliers more effectively
  • Simplify supplier qualification
  • Ensure faster vetting of supplier delivery capabilities
  • Conduct first-shipment inspections based on predetermined specifications
  • Score card and monitor suppliers with a rich set of decision points and quick mitigation activities rather than unknown variables
