This presentation identifies some key findings regarding direct material procurement:
•  Key success criteria of direct procurement are on-time delivery and high-quality, not low costs
•  To achieve this, close relationships with the suppliers are necessary that need to be built up from the early product development phase onwards
•  However, relationships with direct material suppliers are complex and hence not obvious to handle
•  Direct material procurement begins with the early stage of product development and is of strategic importance throughout the product lifecycle
•  OEMs select, monitor and control suppliers beyond their first tier suppliers and focus besides contract manufacturers in particular on core component manufacturers
•  Throughout the production phase an open exchange of information with suppliers is the key success factor to manage the supply chain
This document was developed by a leading strategy consulting firm. The best practices can be used to manage costs and develop competitive advantages.
