Manufacturers and distributors require an action date for release, acknowledgement and shipment as well as shipment information for shipped parts. Customers want an expected receipt date along with tracking number. Symbols indicating late orders, notes and no shipping labels are vital along with a Supplier Scorecard to view performance of each supplier action.
The questions answered by the Collaborative Supply Portal include:
- Did supplier acknowledge on time?
- Did supplier ship on time?
- Did supplier ship complete or partial orders?
- Did the received goods was fully or partially approved on inspection?
Supplier On-time performance is a metric that is measure by supplier ship date, by customer receipt date using the same report for buyer and supplier creating one version of truth for doing supplier review. Analysis by part based on defined and actual consumption, inventory sizing vs. on hand inventory is provided.
