Supplier Manufacturing Transfers

 
After you have followed a thorough sourcing process and finally achieved those great savings with a contract signed, is time to make the change from the incumbent to the new supplier.
 

In many cases, materials planning cannot even wait until all diligences had been completed for contract signature because of long lead items. 

With manufactured products, Phase In-Phase Out has to be planned carefully to prevent things falling into the cracks.

Complex coordination required for supplier manufacturing transfer is usually overlooked by the buyer, and mismanagement of this step represents a high risk of loss of savings negotiated.

VIS can help you to manage the project successfully with all of your company stakeholders: engineering, production, materials planning, logistics, quality, etc.

We make sure there are no loose ends between the customer and supplier, reducing the new vendor failure exposure.
