Suppliers’ development

Depending on the evaluation of a supplier and its performances and the targeted level of collaboration, development or integration processes will be initiated (on performance, innovation, etc.).

Two different levels of supplier development can be envisaged, depending on whether it is perceived as a vector of performance and / or a lever for innovation.


Purchasing, Supply Chain and Quality performances are highly impacted by those of external suppliers.

The results of an evaluation audit are used to anticipate the risks in terms of:
• Quality
• Cost
• Time

Measured performances help prioritize suppliers improvement plans (crisis management or continuous improvement).
Developing a supplier involves raising it to the required level of performance by instituting new practices or organizations.


Integrating the supplier into the R & D process means involving it in joint projects. In this way, the supplier will reflect on innovation and will share the project objectives from the early stages on, or even before project launch.

The integrated supplier, especially if providing strategic products or services, will receive prerequisites and specific links, including contractuals.

On the basis of an evaluation or performances of a supplier and according to the objectives and expectations of the customer, Bridging  will define specific development plans, targeting:

• Practices, procedures and methodologies
• Management or operational processes
• Deviations from standards (ISO 9000, 14000, 45000, TS, …)

Depending on the means and resources available on site, Bridging will implement the necessary steps alongside the client (from training to management of improvement projects) to reconcile client expectations with supplier potential.
