In close cooperation with our suppliers, we strive for a continual improvement process.
The objective is comprehensive improvement of cooperation. Based on insights gained during supplier audits, regular supplier assessments but also recent incidents (such as complaints, delayed deliveries etc.), concerted action is prepared, defined, implemented and monitored for effectiveness.
Furthermore, we expect our partners to continuously assess their quality performance, delivery performance and productivity to create and achieve improvement.
The continual improvement process is based on the DMAIC model (Define – Measure – Analyse – Improve – Control), derived from the six sigma strategy.
