Abstract

More sensible arrangements with vendors can boost quality because often vendors do not deliver component parts with sufficiently high quality. Some topics discussed by this paper are these: vendor relations and quality, quality guaranteed or improved by inspection, Deming's plan, price alone not being a criterion for purchase, the importance of the purchase agent, multiple sourcing, single sourcing, and writing contracts.
