Abstract

PurposeThis paper aims to review the methods used by an automotive manufacturer in enhancing the supply chain management (SCM) system through a set up termed product and vendor development (PVD) programme. PVD was developed to eliminate problems faced due to late delivery and poor quality of supplies and availability of supplies at the lowest possible costs. Design/methodology/approachThe paper explores the step-by-step methodologies that have been employed by the PVD. FindingsResults overtime show that the PVD has improved the SCM system especially in the areas of quality and delivery services, other services and cutting costs that manufacturers had to face due to problems that arose in the shortcomings of the supply services. Research limitations/implicationsThe PVD has managed to promote the localization programme and has also been able to establish qualified vendors through the structured vendor performance evaluation. Practical implicationsFindings also establish that the PVD team is the key to success for development of the PVD programme. Originality/valueThe paper presents an original discussion about viewing PVD programme from a successful automotive manufacturer. The structured PVD programme helps the team better understand the product development process involving supplier selection and supplier performance measure.
