KPI assessment for suppliers
1) Supplier monthly/quarterly KPI
At the end of each year, SQE formulates the “annual key suppliers and their key parts quality objectives” for the next year’s key material categories based on different material categories, as the basis for the supplier’s monthly and quarterly KPI performance assessment for the next year.
2）Processing after assessment
For suppliers whose monthly KPI performance assessment scores are lower than 80 points (or the last 5 suppliers with monthly quality scores), SQE should issue a SCAR to request suppliers to improve the problem points and propose countermeasures, and track the improvement effect of the problem points. If the improvement measures or effects are not acceptable, SQE should urge the supplier to propose more reasonable improvement measures in a timely manner, and if necessary, SQE should ask the supplier to hold a quality review meeting or go to the supplier’s site for guidance and improvement.
3) Supplier Rewards and Penalties
