By ingraining high supplier quality standards first, then tracking and measuring key performance indicators in real-time, manufacturers are able to realize continuous improvement across their value chain.
Manufacturing quality is defined by how well production processes stay aligned with the demanding, diverse and unique requirements of customers while staying in compliance with regulatory requirements. In order to help enforce consistent quality across the supplier network, manufacturers must apply consistent, clear quality goals to ensure not one supplier lapses on quality standards.
