The topic of Supplier Audits can cause severe pain and anxiety for many companies and especially for those who perform them. The “pain” that we experience stems from a combination of first defining all of them in terms of criticality, the frequency and type of audits to be performed based on this evaluation, followed by the time and follow-up of any issues found. There is time needed to prepare for such activities and time is one component many of us don’t have enough of. However, if we don’t adequately plan what we need to do, how we are going to do it and how issues will be tracked when found, then the requirement for Supplier Audits becomes a failed exercise.
