  • "Concurrent Engineering with Early Supplier Involvement: A Cross-Functional Challenge" Members Only Content, Vol. 29, No. 2 (Spring 1993), p. 3.

    This research explores the view that the traditional sequential, or pipeline, approach to technology and product development is no longer adequate. The rapid escalation of global competition is demanding dramatic reductions in the time-to-market cycle, along with higher quality levels and lower costs. Anecdotal evidence points to concurrent engineering, complemented by early purchasing and supplier involvement, as an approach with tremendous potential in addressing the three key issues of time, quality, and cost. The two most significant features of concurrent engineering are (1) customer focus centering on doing the right things, and (2) cycle time reduction focusing on doing them right the first time.

  • "Status and Recognition of the Purchasing Function in the Electronics Industry" Members Only Content, Vol. 32, No. 2 (Spring 1996), p. 30.

    This article examines the status and recognition of the purchasing function in the electronics industry. Issues also investigated are the perception of purchasing as a strategic or a clerical function; recognition as an equal partner on the top management team; access to information and participation in decision making; and the nature of other functions' reporting relationships to purchasing. The results confirm previous research that indicates purchasing is viewed increasingly as a strategic contributor to the firm. Further, there appears to be evidence that purchasing participates as a team member in many decision-making processes of the firm. However, the purchasing function still lacks the status and recognition that should be accorded to a critical strategic function.
