Michelle Wen, Executive Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supplier Quality, Groupe PSA, said “In a context of fierce competition, Purchasing has a key role to play in terms of performance for projects and serial life production phases. We are looking for “QCD” (Quality, Cost & Delivery) performance, not only the lowest cost per part, but also TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). The Monosokuri approach, gathering engineering, manufacturing and purchasing will make the difference towards competitors, and our sourcing with Indian suppliers will lead to newer verticals and opportunities to meet customer needs and respond to the technological shift. This summit also focuses on developing and integrating a broad network of Indian suppliers through encouraging collaborative product development, orchestrating and connecting information across the supply chain, and understanding an ecosystem of suppliers and partners within it.”
The ethical, environmental and social criteria are crucial for the selection of a new supplier, that are regularly assessed by a third party. This assessment covers the following topics: environment, labour practices, fair business practices, and sustainable procurement. This assessment is used for the risk identification and for the selection of sites to be audited. Each supplier assessed receives a score card covering all relevant aspects of the evaluation.
