How resilient are your suppliers?
No matter how prepared or sophisticated your production facilities are you are still vulnerable to short-falls from your suppliers. Whether it is missing a deadline, not delivering a product to the specification that you need or simply being unable to fulfill a commitment in quantity this ‘short fall’ effects your ability to produce and deliver products on time. When a supplier fails to meet the standards of your working agreement the ripple effect can be felt throughout the manufacturing process and ultimately by the end consumer.
The biggest effect on your business of a supplier not meeting expectations is inaction; so, you need to be ready with a contingency plan. Having an supplier to handle short term needs is not only good business practice but ensures continuity of supply to the entire supply chain. It is critical that this process is established, clearly defined and ready for implementation at a moments notice. This includes contacts, pricing, and capacity availability worked out in advance to minimize disruption.
