Supplier Performance Measures
Suppliers to Ferranti Technologies are measured using the ‘Supplier Scorecard’ system which focuses on On Time In Full (OTIF), returns, arrears and Non Conformance Reviews.
The storage & traceability of our components is paramount in meeting the needs of our customers.
To facilitate this, Ferranti has invested in a number of carousel storage units for storing high volume electronic components, providing an efficient and secure method of stock control.
In addition, Ferranti Technologies has introduced a Bar Coding system as an integral part of the stock control process. This investment has not only improved efficiency and traceability but has also resulted in stores accuracy of greater than 99% by component count.
By monitoring our suppliers and inventory, Ferranti Technologies are able to drive performance & customer satisfaction levels even higher.
