    – Establish clear quality requirements and expectations with suppliers.
    – Develop a strong supplier relationship built on trust and open communication.
    – Collaborate with suppliers to improve quality and drive continuous improvement.
    – Conduct root-cause analysis of any quality issues with suppliers to prevent future occurrences.
    – Benefit: Increased product quality, reduced risk of defects and recalls, and improved customer satisfaction.

    CONTROL QUESTION: Does the organization would select a quality supplier over one with a lower price?

    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:

    In 10 years, our goal at Supplier Quality will be for the organization to prioritize quality over cost when selecting suppliers. Our vision is for the organization to recognize the long-term benefits of partnering with high-quality suppliers, rather than being solely driven by short-term cost savings.

    We aim to achieve this goal by implementing processes that thoroughly evaluate suppliers′ quality standards and their ability to consistently meet or exceed them. This will involve close collaboration between Supplier Quality and all other departments within the organization to ensure that quality is always a top consideration in supplier selection.

    To support this goal, we will also strive to foster a culture of quality within the organization, where all employees understand the importance of working with high-quality suppliers and are committed to upholding these standards in every aspect of their work.

    Through these efforts, our ultimate objective is for the organization to become known in the industry for its strict adherence to quality standards in supplier selection and procurement. We believe that by setting this big, hairy, audacious goal, we can drive positive change and create a long-lasting impact on the organization′s success and reputation, not just in the next 10 years, but for decades to come.

    Supplier Quality Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:


    The client, a large manufacturing company in the automotive industry, was facing a critical decision in selecting suppliers for their various components. The company had always prioritized cost reduction and had a history of working with suppliers who offered the lowest prices. However, in recent years, the company had experienced quality issues with these suppliers, resulting in high defect rates and customer complaints. As a result, the management team was considering shifting their approach and focusing on selecting high-quality suppliers over those with lower prices. The company approached our consulting firm to provide insight into this decision and guide them in their supplier selection process.

    Consulting Methodology:

    Our consulting team began by conducting a thorough analysis of the company′s existing supplier selection process and the associated costs. We also performed an evaluation of the current suppliers and their performance in terms of quality and cost. Our team then conducted a benchmarking study to understand the best practices in supplier quality management in the automotive industry. We also interviewed key stakeholders within the organization, including purchasing managers, quality control managers, and production line supervisors, to gather their insights and concerns regarding the supplier selection process. Based on this research, we formulated the following approach for the company:

    1. Supplier Quality Assessment: We recommended that the company establish a Supplier Quality Assessment process, where potential suppliers would be evaluated based on their quality management practices and their ability to meet the company′s quality standards. This evaluation would include a review of the supplier′s quality certifications, past performance, quality control processes, and inspection procedures.

    2. Total Cost of Ownership Analysis: Along with evaluating supplier quality, we also advised the company to consider the total cost of ownership (TCO) while selecting suppliers. TCO analysis involves assessing not only the purchase price of the component but also the costs associated with warranty claims, returns, repairs, and any other quality-related expenses. This would give the company a more accurate picture of the true cost of working with a particular supplier.

    3. Supplier Development Programs: With the help of our team, the company developed a supplier development program that focused on improving the quality management capabilities of their existing suppliers. This program included training and support to suppliers to implement lean principles, Six Sigma methodologies, and other quality improvement tools.


    1. Supplier Quality Assessment Process
    2. Total Cost of Ownership Analysis Framework
    3. Supplier Development Program Guidelines
    4. Implementation Plan for Introducing Quality as a Primary Selection Criteria for Suppliers

    Implementation Challenges:

    The main challenge faced during the implementation of our recommendations was resistance from the purchasing department and senior management. The purchasing department was hesitant to change their approach to supplier selection, while the senior management was concerned about the potential increase in costs. Our consulting team addressed these challenges by providing relevant data and market research reports that showed the benefits of selecting high-quality suppliers over those with lower prices. We also emphasized the long-term benefits of reducing warranty claims and improving customer satisfaction.


    1. Defect rates: A significant KPI to measure the effectiveness of our recommended solution would be the reduction in defect rates. A lower number of defects would indicate that the selected suppliers are meeting the company′s quality standards.

    2. Customer complaints: Another key metric would be the number of customer complaints received after implementing the new supplier selection process. A decrease in the number of complaints would demonstrate the positive impact of selecting higher quality suppliers.

    3. TCO savings: The company could track the total cost of ownership savings achieved after implementing the recommended TCO analysis framework. This would provide a comprehensive view of the cost benefits of selecting high-quality suppliers.

    Management Considerations:

    Our consulting team advised the company to regularly review and monitor the performance of their suppliers through periodic audits, inspections, and quality assessments. We also recommended establishing a performance review system to evaluate the effectiveness of the supplier development program. This would ensure continuous improvement and accountability on the part of the suppliers.


    Our consulting approach provided the company with a structured and data-driven methodology for selecting high-quality suppliers. By implementing our recommendations, the company experienced a significant reduction in defect rates, customer complaints, and overall costs. Furthermore, the supplier development program helped improve the capabilities of the existing suppliers, resulting in a collaborative and long-term relationship between the company and its suppliers. Our client was able to enhance its reputation for providing high-quality products, leading to increased customer satisfaction and improved market share. Overall, the decision to prioritize quality over price proved to be a wise choice for the organization.
