Procurement is more than just focusing on cutting costs of supplies and finding lowest priced vendors. Supply chain optimization and achieving excellence in procurement requires a comprehensive review of internal needs, supply market capabilities, and better collaboration with internal functional departments and suppliers. We offer effective management of prices, quantity orders aligned with scheduling, volatile markets, and “China Syndrome.” We have proven in many cases that Chinese low prices are a myth and in fact, it is more costly when we consider the holistic cost to the organizational system. We have calculated the cost of numerous parts, commodities, components, etc. imported from China by our clients and have successfully demonstrated the overall higher cost of finished orders; that truly is a disadvantage in the market.
