The Importance of Supplier Relationship Management

SDI, at its core, is a supply chain management company that is exclusively focused on creating client value through the efficient and effective management of the MRO supply chain process.

The MRO supply chain is a highly complex, fragmented and evolving segment of the business that is a core enabler of business operations.  It can impact both the top line and bottom line of many businesses.

In order to effectively manage the supply chain there must be a Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) strategy.  SDI’s Vice President of Strategic Sourcing defines SRM and breaks down the five primary tasks of this important component of supply chain management.

In the third post in this series on MRO As-a-Service by Spend Matters, Pierre Mitchell and Michael Lamoureux talk about how managing MRO as a process delivers benefits from efficiency to effectiveness and beyond to an evolutionary phase. The next generation of value, MRO-as-a-Service, helps organizations build intelligent, agile, scalable and integrated supply chains (direct and indirect).

The project team has worked its way through Define, Measure, Analyze, and Improve. It’s time to begin the Control phase. The key stakeholders gather to evaluate the solution as implemented and create a plan to sustain the improvements. The goal is to standardize the improved processes, establish an audit schedule and schedule periodic follow-up to identify additional opportunities for improvement.
