Implementing Quality Procurement
Lintech’s Vendor Management System has been developed for more than negotiating the lowest costs with our suppliers, it is about sourcing quality products first. Lintech has a strict supplier qualification and criteria to determine vendor selection. We perform rigorous prescreening and research. We survey suppliers by audits and regular on-site visits. Our suppliers are also assessed on SAE AS5553 criteria for: Counterfeit Electronic Parts Avoidance, Detection, Mitigation and Disposition. Another step Lintech uses for determining quality vendors is that we monitor industry watchdog sites daily. Lintech also has a Continuous Supplier Assessment Report (CSAR) in place that evaluates the CSAR criteria and performance thresholds continuously for each of our suppliers. Detailed information is easily accessible company wide giving our procurement team up to date information regarding our vendors to assure quality from our suppliers.
