Global competition makes continuous quality improvement a prime business imperative. Ignoring quality or maintaining an existing quality system can negatively affect an organization's competitive position. Not only does this mean ensuring that products and services are delivered to customers that meet their expectations, but it also means that the processes leading to their manufacture and mobilization are sound to the point of not producing output that has quality problems in the first place.

The supply base is critical then in an organization's ability to compete in the future. A majority of quality problems potentially can be passed along from our suppliers. We cannot expect to have quality suppliers without a quality purchasing process. Purchasing is involved in outsourcing more and more complex products and components, so supplier performance and quality is becoming even more critical as a result. How buyers go about their daily activities will have serious ramifications on the quality of the products coming into the organization.
