How to manage dominating plywood suppliers

We are engaged in supply chain management, looks very beautiful, after all, you are to send money to plywood suppliers, representing the supreme customer status, but we only know how challenging our work is. As a SQE, who has not been red faced with his own internal production, who has not yelled at the plywood supplier, and who has been doing business discussion with your third rate plywood supplier in a polite manner all day?

If we encounter a weak plywood supplier, we can yell and yell, and the other party is also wary, but the quality is not well controlled. SQE will inevitably be challenged by internal production, and even attack at the monthly quality meeting, we can only follow the orders with fear and smile. Then I thought to myself: Damn some plywood supplier, I want to blow up your factory!

In fact, sometimes it’s not the weak plywood suppliers that are even more critical. The weak plywood suppliers are weak in quality and strong in cooperation. What should we do if we meet with dominating plywood suppliers?

As a valuable resource of enterprises, plywood suppliers have been paid more and more attention by enterprises. The competition among enterprises has extended to the competition of excellent plywood suppliers.

Generally speaking, the quality management of plywood suppliers will be based on a premise: the enterprise is domiciling, while the plywood supplier is in a weak position, the plywood supplier is willing to get the help of the enterprise, and the enterprise can assist the plywood supplier to improve the quality through guidance, etc. However, is it possible for enterprises to be in a weak position while plywood suppliers are in dominating situation? The answer is yes.

Generally, the plywood related to the key parts of the product should be manufactured by the enterprise itself rather than provided by the external plywood supplier, otherwise the enterprise may lose its competitive advantage.
