Ch 13 Acceptable suppliers: Meet current operational needs as required by contract. Basic partner: Every supplier should be treated as a "basic partner" with mutual respect, honesty, trust, open and frequent communication, and understanding of each other as the minimum guidelines governing the relationship. Co-location/In-plants: One potential outcome of a partnering effort may be a supplier's employee(s) working at a buying organization facility to facilitate the business relationship and daily operational transactions. Design for procurability: Involving supply and suppliers in the need recognition and description stages of the process; also known as "early supply/supplier involvement" or ESI. Early supply/supplier involvement (ESI): Removing functional barriers to speed up the introduction of new designs and achieve significant quality and cost improvements. Exceptional suppliers: Anticipate operational and strategic needs of the purchaser and are capable of meeting and exceeding them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
