In the first step the evaluation of suppliers with the Bensberg component enables the entire reflection of all delivery-related processes of the own company, including the objective key figures of the delivery performances and quality as well as additional criterion as e.g. certification and flexibility of the supplier.

The component clearly identifies weak spots, which strongly influence the own logistic processes. Non-compliance in respect to time and quantity may partly lead to considerable interferences of the production process, especially in the just-in-time environment. The consequences are high costs and disadvantages with regard to the deliveries to the customers. Qualitative problems, especially if they are realized too late, lead to a loss of reputation with the customer and incalculable costs due to claims for damages.

The possibility to inform a supplier of the status he has achieved supports the cooperation with the intention to improve the achieved performance steadily and with lasting effect. Detailed analysis options establish a basis for the positive development of a supplier.

Furthermore the Bensberg component offers the possibility to subsequently obtain evaluations for periods of the past without large time and effort . This is a considerable advantage, especially in the case of upcoming audits.

The evaluation of goods receipts is executed on the basis of the VDA-standard norm 5001, the VDA-standard norm 9003 (New: VDA-standard norm 5011 from Nov./Dec. 2020) and in percent. Extensive evaluation parameters facilitate a differentiated evaluation and analysis of the respective procurement processes.

The possibility to also include in the evaluation schedule lines behind the requested or confirmed delivery date guarantees a precise and detailed evaluation of a supplier at any time.

Also special procurement processes as Kanban, Consignment or VMI can comprehensively be evaluated with the Bensberg component.

In the Bensberg component the evaluation of scheduling agreement releases is complemented with efficient functions enabling a secure and just evaluation of the suppliers. The procedure ‘smoothing’ during which several goods receipts quantities are summarized and evaluated as a unit complete the extensive evaluation options.

The evaluation of quality and defective parts (PPM) is based on stored quality information of the QM-module. Far-reaching analysis options as e.g. the monitoring of target agreements are provided.

The service criteria are a further central element of the Bensberg component. These service criteria enable the evaluation of a supplier, independent of goods movements, according to arbitrary criteria as e.g. certification. The open interface of this evaluation type is already equipped with function modules for e.g. price reliability, packaging instructions and VMI.

The evaluations of a supplier are provided in detailed analyses and can be transmitted to the supplier by mail, Fax, E-Mail or Internet. The possible connection with external systems as e.g. SAP®-BW completes this interface.
