“Strategy without process is little more than a wish list.” – Robert Flick
It is commonly believed that “people are a company’s best resource”
It is commonly believed that “people are a company’s best resource”. After all, people are the source of ingenuity and best practices. What happens, though, when best practices are not followed? What if only 1% of the time?
Throughout the part lifecycle, these defined strategies help ensure success. For a given part or material, for a given supplier or supplier classification, and for a given stage in the lifecycle, you want to ensure that your strategies for the best outcome are followed at that point in time, every time.
Unfortunately, many organizations still have disjointed part lifecycles, making it difficult to institutionalize their strategies across all stages of the process.
Our customers are able to define their strategies outside of specific projects. At defined intersections of criteria (e.g., part and geography), they set workflows/approvals, surveys, roles/permissions and much more. This ensures that their best practices are always followed, every time
