They are more familiar with cost factors that affect the supplying industry and understand well how vendors within the industry operateSlide 15: This specialized knowledge, when combined with the volume buying that centralized purchasing controls, increases firm’s buying strength and its supplier options Centralized purchasers also tend to place different priorities on selected buying criteriaSlide 16: In comparison to local units where the emphasis is more on short – term cost efficiency and profit consideration, centralized units place more emphasis on long – term supply availability and supplier relationshipsMARKETING IMPLICATIONS: MRP, JIT and Centralized Purchasing have a definite impact on industrial marketing programs A close buyer – seller relationship needs to be developed through MRP and JIT It would also necessitate that supplier constantly monitor product quality and delivery capability MARKETING IMPLICATIONSSUPPLIER CHOICE AND EVALUATION: SUPPLIER CHOICE AND EVALUATIONSlide 19: The buying organization’s objective in carefully evaluating and qualifying potential vendors is to locate those suppliers that Have the capacity to produce the needed item in the required quality and quantity Are capable of fulfilling delivery and service needs Are price competitive and Can be relied upon as a continuous source of supplyCRITERIA FOR SUPPLIER EVALUATION: Supplier evaluation generally involves four basic considerations Quality Service Delivery and Price CRITERIA FOR SUPPLIER EVALUATIONEVALUATION METHODS: CATEGORICAL METHOD WEIGHTED – POINT METHOD COST- RATIO METHOD EVALUATION METHODSCATEGORICAL METHOD : Supplier evaluation is based on the experience and opinions of the user departments It is subjective in nature and non quantitative in nature Can suffer from perceptual biases CATEGORICAL METHODWEIGHTED – POINT METHOD : Weights are assigned to the different evaluation criteria Assigning weights to each factor enables the buyer to develop a composite performance index that can be quantitatively used to compare suppliers WEIGHTED – POINT METHODWEIGHTED – POINT METHOD OF SUPPLIER EVALUATION: FACTOR WEIGHT ACTUAL PERFORMANCE PERFORMANCE SCORE QUALITY 40 90 % ACCEPTABLE 40 x .9=36 DELIVERY 30 90 % ON SCHEDULE 30x .9=27 COST- REDUCING SUGGESTIONS 20 % OF TOTAL RECEIVED = 60 20x.6 = 12 PRICE 10 125 % OF LOWEST PRICE 100/125 = 0.8 10x.8=8 TOTAL COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE SCORE 83 WEIGHTED – POINT METHOD OF SUPPLIER EVALUATIONSlide 25: The advantage of weighted – point method of supplier evaluation to the buyer is that a number of evaluative criteria can be proportioned to correspond with the values of the firm It also forces the buyer to define the key attributes of a supplier and objectively evaluate them, thus minimizing much of the subjective evaluation that occurs under the categorical methodCOST- RATIO METHOD : The cost- ratio method is based on the use of cost analysis in evaluating suppliers Under this method, all identifiable purchasing costs are related to the value of products received The choice of costs depends on the products involved Commonly used categories are quality, delivery, service and price COST- RATIO METHODSlide 27: High ratio of costs to products correspond to low rating of supplier Low ratio means the supplier’s rating is highSlide 28: From the buyer’s perspective, cost associated with quality include such factors like Visits to the vendor’s plant Evaluation of samples Inspection of incoming shipments Costs associated with defective products ( e.g. unusual inspection procedures, rejected parts, and manufacturing time lost due to defective parts )MARKETING IMPLICATIONS: Industrial marketers must be aware of the criteria that buyers employ in evaluating their offerings Evaluation criteria of buying organizations would however vary, depending on their objectives , requirements, and structures By developing a rating system based on customer criteria , a similar system can be used by the selling firm to :- MARKETING IMPLICATIONSSlide 30: Promote and enhance the value of the company’s product and services Provide special control over items that customers consider critical to their operations Improve efficiency of internal planning and control Supply “ hard facts “ in support of contract negotiations You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
