This program will capture key aspects of the process from selection, monitoring, and taking remedial measures as necessary with the support of cross-functional groups within the organization from a small company to a multi-national corporation perspective.
Suggestions for cost-effective and pragmatic solutions will be discussed based on different scenarios. This will include applying risk management principles with a strong emphasis on risk mitigation efforts to sustain regulatory compliance and enhance the growth of the business.
Various types of audits, and how they can be implemented in a cost-effective manner will be discussed. Emphasis will be on the application of quality metrics using trending of various data.
The effective communication process of vendor-related quality & compliance metrics to cross-functional management groups to have a proactive approach will be also discussed. The aim is to find the root cause of the problem and correct the issue to prevent such recurrences in the future.
We will provide adequate opportunities to have your questions answered during the webinar.
Why should you Attend:
As stated in the "background" above, it is obvious that a vendor is considered an extension of your own operation. Hence their performance cannot be ignored. If they fail, companies using their products/services will also fail. Therefore, scrutiny of their business and regulatory compliance based on risk is of paramount importance. Implementation of a pragmatic, cost-effective, and robust audit program is vital for vendor qualification programs. Onsite audit performance is strongly suggested in applying risk management concepts in the vendor qualification program on a continuous basis. As a risk mitigation strategy, qualified backup suppliers should be readily available for usage.
It should be noted that if a component (from a qualified supplier) is not available from the vendor, there will not be a product by the manufacturing company. This will have a significant impact on the company’s business overall. Hence strong partnership with the vendors is important. In conclusion, a proactive approach with a bilateral communication process with the vendors in a healthy environment is vital for the success of the companies from a business and regulatory perspective.
