your need :
New Vendor Audit ¡V
Understanding that you may have identified dozens of potential vendors
during exhibitions, from the Internet and other promotion channels, but
you can hardly visit and evaluate their factories and operations in
China. We can provide a one-time audit and provide an evaluation report
on areas including human resources, development capability, production
facilities and quality management.
Supervision on Development Cycle
¡V Once your new project is confirmed, we can hold routine project
meetings with your vendor to discuss progress on outstanding issues in
different development stages, from kick-off, engineering samples, pilot
run, to production release.
Sample Evaluation ¡V
Upon different milestones, you may require the vendor to submit samples
for your evaluation.
Our Performance Audit Team can
perform validation based on our internal qualification test plans, or
according to your performance specifications. It is particularly useful
when your vendors always make several sample submissions before all
performance problems are resolved. It saves plenty of time by avoiding
sending samples back and forth, and by explaining problems face to face.
Schedule Delay Alert
¡V By project meetings and sample performance, we would evaluate the
project development progress. We will provide alerts when we have found
factors leading to significant schedule delay.
Corrective Actions -
In case of unresolved development problem, we can provide technical
advises and ensure the corrective actions (e.g. design modifications,
component changes, manpower resources allocation, etc) are taken.
