GAIN THE INSIGHT YOU NEED TO REDUCE SUPPLY CHAIN COSTS AND INCREASE PRODUCT QUALITY WITH A DETAILED ASSESSMENT OF YOUR QUALITY MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES
How well does your supply chain manage quality? Impactiva’s highly trained consultants will evaluate the systems and protocols of your suppliers, delivering an in-depth, objective view of their internal approach and quality management gaps. Ultimately, you will gain the knowledge to develop and implement customized procedures that decrease costs, improve quality and maximize efficiency.
How it works
Our Quality Management System Assessment evaluates the processes and procedures of your factories, trading companies, warehouses and/or distribution network. Each assessment produces a detailed report of the facility’s ability to control quality and respond to daily challenges.
Thorough, Proprietary Audit Process
Impactiva’s consultants conduct two monthly assessments at each designated supply chain facility, resulting in overall ratings—based on 24 category scores and more than 200 criteria—and a list of corrective actions. Facilities receiving low quality management ratings continue to be audited on a monthly basis, while those receiving acceptable ratings are audited bi-monthly or quarterly, ensuring sustainable quality management throughout your supply chain.
Valuable Insight to Optimize Your Supply Chain
Our assessment reports provide the information needed to eliminate disruptions caused when problems are not systematically anticipated, detected and solved. For instance, each report contains insight into how your supplier responds to shipment delays, noncompliance, production errors and other challenges. Further, they detail your suppliers’ management structures, business results and key procedures, such as claims handling, process monitoring, avoidance of reworks and rejects, problem solving and quality measurement.
