Supplier Relationship Management

Increasing value created in the supply chain...Globalization of design and manufacturing... Can you handle the complexity of a global business? The Dassault Systèmes High-Tech Supplier Relationship Management solution covers the entire spectrum of managing a High-Tech product sourcing ecosystem.

Covering the Entire Product Sourcing Ecosystem

Dassault Systèmes (DS)' Supplier Relationship Management solution is designed to cover the entire spectrum of managing a High-Tech / Electronic product sourcing ecosystem.  This includes understanding the business drivers that can differentiate consumer electronic products with shorter life cycles vs. high variant engineer-to-order market products with much longer service phase requirements.

With our solution, engineers and quality managers can give their suppliers real-time access to relevant product information, making them an integral part of the early design collaboration, quality management and supplier execution processes.  The suppliers are assigned responsibilities related to specific parts, allowing multiple suppliers to work together on the same assembly with differing visibility and access.  Part quality plans can be assigned at the same time, ensuring the suppliers follow standardized improvement and planning methodologies and best practices. Supplier performance is tracked through supplier scorecards comprised of report metrics on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) from plants, certifications and supplier capabilities.  As a result, development plans can be devised together with the suppliers to maximize the value of strategic relationships.  This enables the ability to perform continuous improvement to processes and hand-offs between OEMs, EMS (Electronic Manufacturing Services) and other key supply chain stakeholders.
