Improving Vendor Performance (Cost and Quality)

By: Adil Butt, Cole Forbes and Melanie Matining (BCIT Business Operations Management Students)

You’re invited to attend the following APICS Fraser Valley / BCIT event:

Wednesday March 20th (dinner meeting): Vendor Management Systems

Twice per year the BCIT Business Operations Management Program in cooperation with our Industry Partners places teams of students into those organizations to work on “real world” process improvement projects.

Join us on the evening of Wednesday March 20th for a look inside an actual process improvement project as Adil Butt, Cole Forbes and Melanie Matining, three BCIT Business Operations Management students, profile their Fall 2018 project which was conducted at Electra Meccanica (a start-up electric vehicle manufacturer) with the focus to improve Vendor Management.

Adil, Cole and Melanie will walk us though the steps that they took including:

  • Initial investigation of symptoms and agreement on scope (Terms of Reference)
  • Component Risk and Vendor Qualification Assessments
  • Development of a Vendor Performance Evaluation Scorecard and On-Site Auditing Form
  • Documentation of Standard Operating Procedures and Work Instructions for all of the new elements and procedures


This will be of particular interest to any organization interested in improving their Vendor Management Systems (improving quality while reducing cost) as Adil, Cole and Melanie will profile how they applied tools learned in the classroom to “the real world” and how you can use the same techniques to improve your operations, or, if you prefer, how you can engage BCIT students to do similar projects at your facility.
