Suppliers Quality Management

SIQ Systems believes that suppliers are extensions of the company, so the relationship between company and supplier needs to be strengthened on a daily basis, so that both can overcome their challenges and achieve their goals. The Supplier Quality Management Suite aims to strengthen the supply chain, making it possible for our customers to achieve significant reductions in their supplier PPMs, as well as in the time of handling nonconformities through the use of the Portal, together with the Quality Indicators, allow a Competitive Intelligence and thus a more complete and effective management. Comprehensive and robust, this Suite serves from the sample approval process, vendor evaluations and audits, incoming inspections and, or, origin, treatment of nonconformities with a view to continuous improvement, tooling management in Third-party power, packaging and documents relevant to the process, ranging from quality certificates, to legal documents, and others that prove suitability and respect for the environment by the chosen supplier, for example.

 

SIQ Suppliers Quality Management Suite is composed of the following modules:

 

PPAP

Production Part Approval Process – is used to establish a standard between the companies, their suppliers of parts, components and production processes. From the product specifications (technical characteristics and layout), the supplier carries out all the planning of the manufacturing, testing and data collection processes. In this way, it can be assessed whether the supplier is able to supply the product and comply with the conditions and quality specificities of the required product.

 

Non Conformities

The main objective of the Nonconformities module is to identify and completely eliminate all existing Non-Conformities, minimizing undesirable situations with the application of Corrective Actions and Preventive Actions, always focusing on the Continuous Improvement of activities. The module directs users to a methodology for solving nonconformities, according to the method applied by the company, as: 8D, 5PB’s, Ishikawa Fish Diagram, among others, these methods being established according to the client’s preferences.

 

Tooling Management in Power of Third Parties

Reduce quality problems related to company tooling failures held by suppliers. To control such tools, especially the values of these assets, their location, useful life and technical conditions, which allows a better budget planning for the next periods (research), taking into account the Item Demand and Tool Construction Time

 

Compliance (Legal documents, contracts and certification management)

Control and maintain documents of suppliers of products and services such as Certifications, Licenses, Contracts and other documents according to the quality policy of the Company. Most common examples: ISO/TS 16949, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and MAS, Environmental Licenses, Operating License, Production License, Supply Contracts, Licenses of public agencies such as Federal Police, Military Police, IBAMA.

Quality Competitive Intelligence. PPM, Average, Standard Deviation, Dispersion, Failure Trends, IDF, Audit Grades. Pareto Charts, Trends and management reports.

 

Refund

Explain the internal costs generated by problems of poor supplier quality, thus allowing the submission of the request for compensation to the Suppliers.

 

Skip Lot

Inspection of fractional lots of Suppliers products that present an exemplary and stable history of quality, according to criteria of importance defined by the user, such as: characteristics, levels of reliability, etc.
