In an intensely competitive environment which requires the appropriate potential for improvement to be unlocked in a structured fashion, efficient, effective supplier evaluation is becoming a basic success factor in retailing.
It is a type of supplier evaluation which embraces the crucial elements of success, ranging from quality of supply through maintenance of service-level right to the necessity for electronic data transmission, a type of evaluation which displays these elements clearly for all involved and shows up areas of weakness promptly and consistently. Here, one of the fundamental challenges lies in consolidating the available data. The data is often distributed in various places throughout the company and is scarcely used unless as the result of considerable effort. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate possibilities for showing increased transparency and efficient performance evaluation for the benefit of trade and industry.
