MRO, Indirect Material - Supplier Documentation

Hello Everyone,

First of all, thank you to everyone for all the answers and feedback to my questions.

Here is another one. Could someone please provide some feedback on what is required as documentation/certification/ evaluation from suppliers when buying MRO and indirect materials? Thank you very much!

The risk-based model for supplier management is what I would recommend. Depending on the risk to product, process or QMS should define the level of effort that should be exhorted. For example a high risk supplier that makes a part that goes into a mission critical assembly would be far more than the supplier of office supplies.

Check out some examples in this book that @John Freije and I co-authored. If you have any other questions please reach out to me.

Hello James,

Is there a way to find out the table of contents for your book?

Thank you.
