Module Summary

Conducting a supplier site visit is an excellent way for supply managers and their team to gain a better understanding of a supplier's size, capabilities, corporate goals, and management philosophies. In addition, the organization can see the supplier's operation in action and talk with key personnel from various departments who will work with the organization on a daily basis.

Thorough planning and coordination is required to ensure that supply managers meet their site visit goals. An effective supplier site visit is a fact-finding trip that can help determine if the supplier is a good match for the organization and whether or not the supplier can meet the buying organization's needs. In these modern times of improved customer/supplier interactions and strategic partnerships, this has become a critical tool. It is used to ensure that the relationship between companies is developed and maintained to the greatest possible degree.
