Sec 188.8.131.52 requires monitoring supplier performance thru four indicators (product conformity, disruptions, delivery, and special status notifications). We have about 75-100 suppliers. However, like most small businesses, the top 5-10 supply 80-90% of our requirements. For 15+ years, we have done this monitoring by creating exception lists (i.e.; Naughty lists). So, for example, we would review all incoming shipments and would highlight those which were not on time and create a list which we reviewed every quarter. So for Q1 we would see a total on-time delivery of 98%, with supplier A with 1 late, and supplier B with 2. We would take action where necessary. It has worked very well for us. Now we are being told in a 3rd party audit, that doesn't cut it. Apparently, we must create "data" for each and every supplier. So we would need to have "summary" data for everyone, even suppliers who might have 1-2 or even 0 shipments per year. It's basically creating a report with a lot of "0"s. We see no value in such an exercise. What say you?
