  13. 13. Developing KPIs for Indirect Suppliers
  14. 14. Evaluation criteria for indirect suppliers can be grouped into three categories Definitions of Supplier Criteria Ultimate objective is to be able to quantifiably measure and compare individual supplier’s performance <ul><li>How well does the supplier deliver on the terms, conditions and prices agreed to in the contract? </li></ul><ul><li>How well does a supplier satisfy our customers from a product or service quality perspective? </li></ul><ul><li>How cost competitive is the supplier from an industry perspective and from a historical perspective? </li></ul><ul><li>How well does the supplier continue to enhance the product/service, process or cost? </li></ul>Contract Compliance Cost Competitiveness and Continuous Improvement Customer Satisfaction
  15. 15. Specific KPIs can be tailored to meet the needs of various suppliers Attributes Objective and subjective attributes are necessary for measuring indirect suppliers <ul><li>Actual cost vs. budget </li></ul><ul><li>SLA responsiveness </li></ul><ul><li>On time deliveries </li></ul><ul><li>Return rate </li></ul><ul><li>Order and billing accuracy </li></ul><ul><li>Average lead-time </li></ul><ul><li>Customer Surveys </li></ul><ul><li>Technical Support </li></ul><ul><li>Supplier vs Industry </li></ul><ul><li>Supplier vs Other Benchmark </li></ul><ul><li>Ecommerce capability </li></ul><ul><li>Supplier Partnership Initiative </li></ul><ul><li>Cost Reduction Target </li></ul>Contract Compliance Customer Satisfaction Cost Competitiveness and Continuous Improvement
  16. 16. Indirect KPIs can use a 1 to 5 scale to score KPIs and a weighting system which allows some flexibility, but keeps weights significant and relatively consistent <ul><li>Indirect Supplier Evaluation Criteria </li></ul>Standard Scores 5 = Superior – far exceeds expectations 4 = Exceeds expectations 3 = Meet expectations 2 = Does not meet expectations 1 = Needs improvement; significantly does not meet expectations Allowing flexibility with category weighting ensures that the KPI scorecard is tailored to meet the unique needs of the measured supplier Contract Compliance Customer Satisfaction 30-50% 20-30% 100% Cost Competitiveness and Continuous Improvement = 30-50%
  17. 17. <ul><li>Contract Compliance </li></ul>
  18. 18. Contract Compliance Attributes <ul><li>Actual costs versus budget </li></ul><ul><li>Service level results </li></ul><ul><li>On time delivery </li></ul><ul><li>Return rate </li></ul><ul><li>Order and billing accuracy </li></ul><ul><li>Average lead-time </li></ul>Contract compliance attributes mirror the supplier’s contractual commitments
  19. 19. Customer Satisfaction
  20. 20. While KPIs measured with objective data are the most reliable, it can be argued that they do not capture the entire picture in regards to supplier performance <ul><li>Traditional KPI constraints: </li></ul><ul><li>Difficult to evaluate the interactions of supplier personnel with customers </li></ul><ul><li>Quality can only be measured in regards to damage or breakdown, and is difficult to measure for services </li></ul><ul><li>Strong traditional supplier KPI data does not necessarily indicate whether or not the customer is satisfied </li></ul>Customer Satisfaction Surveys provide mechanism to help evaluate supplier performance
  21. 21. Customer Satisfaction Surveys capture the customer‘s opinions in regards to supplier performance. <ul><li>Supplier Interaction: Infrequent ___ Moderate____High ____ </li></ul><ul><li>Questions: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I feel the supplier provides high quality goods and services. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I feel the supplier provides high value for the cost. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I would recommend this supplier to others. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When I have questions, this supplier responds in a timely manner. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If there is an issue, this supplier resolves the issue in a timely manner. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If there is an issue, this supplier resolves the issue to my satisfaction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In my opinion, this supplier deserves recognition as a top supplier. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Scale: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1: Strongly Disagree </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2: Disagree </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3: Neutral </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4: Agree </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>5: Strongly Agree </li></ul></ul>Customer satisfaction surveys can be a primary determinant of customer satisfaction
  22. 22. A comprehensive supplier measurement system can mitigate customer satisfaction survey limitations <ul><li>Customer satisfaction tends to be overwhelmed by bad experience, even if the bad experience was not the supplier‘s fault </li></ul><ul><li>Most recent experience is recalled; not overall supplier performance </li></ul><ul><li>Surveys tend to be subjective </li></ul><ul><li>A single negative response can skew results </li></ul><ul><li>Response rate tends to be low </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate responses in relation to other KPI data. Conduct enough surveys to mitigate this effect </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust weighting for Customer Satisfaction Survey where commodity has a great deal of objective data </li></ul><ul><li>Utilize statistically significant sample size and possibly discard highest and lowest scores </li></ul><ul><li>Target key customers with vested interest and explain significance of KPI </li></ul>Issues Mitigating Techniques
  23. 23. Cost Competitiveness and Continuous Improvement
  24. 24. Benchmarking establishes cost competitiveness <ul><li>Supplier vs industry </li></ul><ul><li>Supplier vs other benchmark </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Standard or target prices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Should” cost prices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Price paid” indices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consumer Price Index (“CPI”) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Ecommerce capability </li></ul>Comparing supplier pricing against benchmarks assists in avoiding “price creep”
  25. 25. Cost Competitiveness and Continuous Improvement Guidelines <ul><li>In addition to KPIs that measure cost versus competition and industry standards, continuous improvement, supplier process improvements and/or cost saving targets can be established </li></ul><ul><li>Define baseline spend that generates the savings target </li></ul>Cost Saving Guidelines 5 = Superior – far exceeds expectations 6% or more 4 = Exceeds expectations 4 – 6% 3 = Meet expectations 2 – 4% 2 = Does not meet expectations 0 – 2% 1 = Significantly does not meet expectations 0%
  26. 26. Collecting the Data
  27. 27. Evaluate the costs/benefits of each data collection method available Data collection is the most difficult and time-consuming activity in the KPI process. However, it is integral to a successful KPI program. Unbiased company collected data electronically Data collected / tracked by supplier Recommended approach Cost to collect data
  28. 28. A wide range of sources can provide measurement data ERP Systems Supplier-provided reports Third-party data Industry benchmarks Customer Satisfaction Surveys Data Warehouse Attaching the data and documentation to the scorecard validates scoring and makes it possible for the supplier to take corrective action
  29. 29. The KPI Scorecard
  30. 30. Sample Scorecard - Temp Labor KPIs
  31. 31. An overall score is calculated and used to measure indirect suppliers’ performance <ul><li>Indirect Supplier Evaluation Criteria </li></ul>Indirect Supplier KPI Score 3.89 Weight X Score = Indirect Supplier KPI Score <ul><li>Weight = 30% </li></ul><ul><li>Score = 4 </li></ul><ul><li>Weight = 30% </li></ul><ul><li>Score = 4.3 </li></ul><ul><li>Weight = 40% </li></ul><ul><li>Score = 3.5 </li></ul>EXAMPLE Contract Compliance Customer Satisfaction Cost Competitiveness and Continuous Improvement
  32. 32. Guidelines for developing KPIs <ul><li>Determine criteria for identifying which suppliers will be measured by KPIs </li></ul><ul><li>What gets measured, gets done. Be clear on what you’re measuring and why. </li></ul><ul><li>Develop jointly with suppliers to achieve buy-in </li></ul><ul><li>Align KPIs with your goals and objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Develop KPIs that are objective and measurable </li></ul><ul><li>Limit KPIs to a manageable number </li></ul><ul><li>Communicate results to suppliers and management on a timely basis </li></ul><ul><li>Complete the process and follow-up on results and corrective actions </li></ul>KPI Guidelines Business Benefits <ul><li>Generates supplier improvements that benefit you </li></ul><ul><li>Justifies supplier’s inclusion in your supply base </li></ul><ul><li>Identifies need to re-source supplier </li></ul><ul><li>Strengthens and improves supplier relationships </li></ul><ul><li>Develops suppliers </li></ul><ul><li>Rewards for performance </li></ul>KPIs drive continuous improvement and cost savings
