Supplier Development: A Way to Lean Suppliers
Author: Miroslav Kucera
Format: Kindle Edition
Plenty of books about supplier development and application of lean principles in supplier management are available for students, supply chain managers and strategic purchasers. Some of them are excellent and provide complete guide through the complicated and difficult process. Truth is that all of the best books are priced very high and it is not better for the remaining available books written on this topic.
The book covers the most important phases of supplier development projects:
- selection of suppliers
- establishing common understanding of the project and goals
- analyzing supplier
- baseline process map creation
Purpose of this book is to give to a reader overview of the supplier development process in not more than 5000 words. Honestly, the book cannot be compared with the top class supplier development handbooks. The lack of complexity is balanced by lower price.
