Automotive industry is one of the most challenging sectors within industry.
Largest companies tend to produce only the products with high content of know-how and buy the rest to external companies “suppliers”. Therefore, the impact of purchased products is key for a good performance of the company. Suppliers do have a great impact on the customer : cost, quality and service.
Within automotive industry, the most common procedure is that product engineers define the product needed with a technical specification (drawing, 3d data, technical propertities, etc). In some cases, raw material is also needed.
