Engineered Products

For more complex products such as those with an engineered or performance content and with a mid-range value, there will be an increased risk to the buyer and a requirement therefore for a higher-level of management of the procurement process.

Typically, the buyer will provide, to the supplier, a product specification containing technical content, performance needs, enhanced documentation, delivery schedule and inspection or external third party design review.

Such a process may, depending on the criticality and value of the item being purchased, require active management of the supplier during the product manufacture or build. This typical process is shown by the accompanying diagram and Dockstr is well positioned to provide support during the various stages of the procurement.

RFQ

Preparation or review of bid documentation including design, specification, supplier criteria, etc.
