Building Supply Chain Resiliency with Digital Technologies

How resilient are your quality assurance operations?

Welcome to your Resiliency Assessment Short

1/8- My organization relies predominantly on digital reporting to conduct inspections and share results:
2/8-My organization is proactively moving away from manual processes to manage quality operations:
3/8- I typically receive inspection reports & results less than 1 day after an inspection has been conducted:
4/8- I can monitor inspection activities in real-time and from a remote location:
5/8- I have an efficient and aggregated reporting system in place:
6/8- I have not experienced human error and/or negligence in reporting in the last year:
7/8- I have an effective framework (& standardized processes) that enable me to compare the performance of all vendors and factories in my ecosystem:
9/41- I have an effective process/framework in place that allows me to compare all of my quality assurance operations across all regions:
1/8- I have quick access to reliable, complete, and consistent data about all of my quality assurance operations:
2/8- I have instant access to important data and inspection results (My access to data is not delayed by siloed data systems).
3/8- I am able to identify flaws and high-risk areas in my quality assurance operations in real-time:
4/8- I am able to point at the root cause of quality compliance issues as soon as they happen:
5/8- I have quick and actionable data at hand to address the root causes of any quality compliance issue:
6/8- I am able to quickly identify where and how to rearrange my quality assurance resources in a time of crisis:
8/8- I have consistent & reliable information on the quality of goods produced necessary to authorize shipment:
1/8- I use real-time data from reports to drive most of my business decisions:
1/8- I have predefined workflows and protocols I can easily share with suppliers and factories in my ecosystem:
2/8- Suppliers and factories have a centralized channel to inform my quality team about trends and events that can affect operations:
3/8- Have a centralized channel to discuss areas to improve with my suppliers and factories:
4/8- I have a centralized system where all quality activities can take place, increasing visibility and collaboration for all stakeholders:
5/8- I have a proactive approach to quality and I do not feel like I am constantly fire-fighting:
6/8- I have easy access to accurate data on the quality operations of my vendor & factory matrix, enabling me to implement effective recalibration where necessary:
7/8- I am able to assign self-inspections for the vendors & factories I work with – enabling them to conduct their own quality assurance inspections while still providing full visibility to my organization:
2/8- I have a single source of truth I can go to when I need data about my quality assurance operations:
3/8- I have a single system for clear and accurate reporting that allows me to easily identify areas in need of improvement:
4/8- I have access to advanced data analytics to inform strategic decisions about my quality assurance operations:
5/8- I know who are the top performers in my ecosystem and how to best take advantage of their capabilities:
6/8- I am able to create the right incentives for higher accountability and continuous improvement for every partner in my ecosystem:
7/8- I have a dynamic and adaptive process that gives me actionable insights on the performance of every partner in my ecosystem in real-time:
8/8- I have an individual analysis of the capabilities and recent performance of every partner in my supply chain ecosystem to drive consistent improvements:
1/8- I have an automated process to evaluate the performance of my suppliers and factories:
2/8- I have an automated process to identify and mitigate risk:
3/8- I have an agile supply chain capable of collaborating to mitigate risk:
4/8- I use predictive analytics to identify factories at risk and potential quality failures:
5/8- I mainly have process reliant operations and I do not base my decisions on individual performance:
6/8- I have speedy & efficient execution of necessary but low value-added quality compliance activities:
7/8- My quality assurance process are consistently executed, enabling me to conduct comparative analysis of the partners in my supply chain ecosystem:
8/8- My operations are dynamic and can quickly & easily adapt to changing realities on the ground:
8/8- I have an effective process/framework in place that allows me to compare all of my quality assurance operations across all regions:
7/8- I can quickly and easily mitigate risk coming from quality issues:
8/8- I have been able to ensure SOPs are being followed across my quality assurance operations despite mobility restrictions:
