Summary
"The revolution in purchasing is challenging the traditional thinking that has dominated business for the last twenty years. The adversarial relationship between buyers and suppliers is evolving into a new partnership, based on long-term business goals. Companies are now leveraging the role of purchasing to achieve competitive advantage in supplier quality, product delivery, and new product development." "Purchasing in the 21st Century provides a unique view on these important changes, coupled with proven guidelines for creating a more effective purchasing operation. John Schorr uses his many years of experience in the field to guide companies through a rigorous evaluation of their current operation, providing guidelines and invaluable advice on implementing accurate Supplier Scheduling; managing purchasing in a Just-in-Time, MRP II, and/or Total Quality Management environment; using MRP/JIT/TQM to dramatically increase performance of on-time deliveries, to decrease lead times, reduce lot sizes, and achieve an overall cost reduction of purchased materials; how to implement synchronized deliveries in conjunction with a Kanban system; and selecting the best performance measurements for suppliers." "In leading-edge companies, purchasing has made the transition to building new partnerships with a select number of high-quality suppliers. Schorr shows how companies such as Steelcase and Corning Glass implemented supplier partnerships with impressive results. A complete, step-by-step approach to supplier partnering describes how companies can implement and manage these vital relationships. Purchasing in the 21st Century gives purchasing executives and their counterparts across the company state-of-the-art guidelines for creating and effectively managing their purchasing operation. By reshaping the role and direction of purchasing, every company can realize significant improvements in their operations and competitive capabilities."--Jacket
