Supplier Performance in QAD

Posted on: March 27, 2019 | By: Brad Weinstein | QAD Manufacturing, QAD Business Process

One major factor in a manufacturer’s success is the dependability of their suppliers.  Are your raw materials being delivered on time? Are you receiving the actual quantity that you ordered?  In many cases, not knowing the answers to these questions can become a detriment to your manufacturing business.  When it comes to the performance of your suppliers, ignorance is NOT bliss.  Tools that allow you to compile data and statistics on your suppliers can be an efficient way to save your business money. 

The Supplier Performance module in QAD EE allows you to thoroughly monitor the performance of your suppliers, both external and internal, through a highly customizable data collection and reporting system.  QAD EE provides you with the opportunity for both automatic and manual data collection and gives you the option to create your own data collection points in addition to using the default ones already in the system. 

Within the Supplier Performance module in QAD EE, the first step to enabling performance data collection is to register your supplier.  This essentially activates the supplier performance metrics for that specific supplier.  From there, the Supplier Performance module allows you to explicitly define which activities you want to count and when you want to count them.  Keep in mind that any supplier related activity can be tracked!  Lastly, QAD EE offers multiple rating systems for you to use when reviewing your suppliers, allowing you to choose depending on what fits your business best. 

QAD EE’s Supplier Performance module is an excellent tool for your manufacturing business as it allows you to precisely track, monitor, rate, and review your suppliers.  With QAD constantly unveiling new QAD Channel Islands features, the functionality of the Supplier Performance module in QAD EE should only increase in the near future. If you think Supplier Performance is something that can provide benefit to your business, please do not hesitate to contact Logan Consulting for further information!
