Operations Excellence: Managing Your Suppliers for Maximum Results
After achieving performance successes within your organization, where should you look next?


BioPharm International
Volume 19, Issue 9

Better supplier management doesn't need to wait for the Operations Excellence program to mature in production. Many of the above identified improvements can begin in parallel to production-related improvements.

However, companies need to face reality: The biopharm industry will not likely reach the production volumes of small molecule producers or companies in other industries for years to come. Until better leverage is achieved, your company will need to put in extra effort and management to minimize supplier risk to quality and delivery.
