Our Tampa office worked with the local ASQ section and Hillsborough Community College’s Institute for Corporate and Continuing Education and coordinated and instructed a series of webinars that will run through this month. The webinar scheduled for today discusses Supply Chain Management, which many in our industry recognize is a broad topic. As a brief introduction, the following components are discussed:
- Conduct a needs analysis (brainstorm and consider long-term growth expectations).
- Conduct preliminary interviews and/or surveys.
- Evaluate samples.
- Perform on-site audits (general quality systems management, ISO based, social responsibility, security, etc.).
- Use a grid analysis for objective decision making.
