Consolidated Supplier Management

Supplier Management Mechanism

YOKE divides purchases into 12 types according to their nature (3 major categories) and critical degree (3 major categories; outsourced processing purchases are referred to as “activities”). Besides general purchases/activities, all suppliers need to be evaluated. Starting from screening of suppliers, YOKE adopts mechanisms involving varying depths to inspect them and becomes involved in the growth and upgrade of the suppliers. The hope is to lead all partners in the supplier chain towards joint growth taking advantage of the sound supplier inspection and counseling mechanisms and to advance in the safety lifting components and high altitude operation fall-proof safety equipment fields so that the company can continue to grow and become strong. YOKE divides evaluations into periodic ones and annual audits according to the time points and frequencies involved in the supplier inspection mechanism.

New Supplier Evaluation

The Purchase Department seeks new suppliers from time to time depending on the demand. Once they are determined for the time being to meet the requirements, the suppliers are asked to complete the supplier survey. The inspection form includes related corporate liability management systems, promotion of energy-saving plans, availability of an internal/external mail box for filing complaints, promotion of charity events, and prior punishments by the competent authority for having violated economic, environmental, human resources, and product-related laws and regulations or not as the common items to be rated. Once the questionnaires are recovered, they are discussed by the Purchase Department and the Quality Assurance Department jointly with the Development Center and the Manufacturing Department. Together they visit the manufacturing site of the new supplier for an audit or quality inspection. Once it is confirmed that the supplier meets related requirements, it is included in the roster of qualified suppliers. After the samples and small-batch mass production are tested without errors found, the order is officially placed. A total of 387 new suppliers were approved through the new supplier evaluation in 2017 and purchases from them of related raw materials began.

Supplier Audit

The annual supplier audit focuses only on critical and non-critical suppliers and the audit is conducted in the form of a written review of their quality, price, delivery, and service (QPDS). Such audit takes place once a year and QPDS results of suppliers are reflected upon and discussed on a yearly basis. A supplier has to get a score of 70-79% (C) at the same time in order to be included in the roster of qualified suppliers and purchases may continue. For suppliers with a score of 60-69% (D) or less than 60% (E) in the evaluation, further site audits and assistance in seeking improvements are needed. They must complete improvements within 45 days and be confirmed whether or not they have fulfilled the criteria.
