Procurement and Supply Chain Management
The MPE purchasing team is responsible for ensuring that all components purchased to meet the standards set within the specification for an assembly. Electronics procurement is complex, and we are proud of the expertise and skill of our team. They succeed with the use of their extensive experience. They discern the most appropriate suppliers for the range of components or manufactured items that are to be purchased.
The team has access to the latest software that informs them of stock availability around the world, enabling them to potentially reduce lead times and cost. We continue to update this software as electronic procurement evolves.
Electronics Supply Chain Management
When received, each component needs to be stored, handled and if required, tested such that the assembled product will meet the specification and perform reliably. The definition of the handling requirements of each component is stored within the engineering database at MPE.
Thousands of components are purchased and delivered from many suppliers each day. The computerised Enterprise Requirement Planning (ERP) system informs the purchasing team of the requested and expected delivery date of each part. Storing information within the system about the expected delivery date of a component ensures that the production operation is planning its capacity to meet the customer’s delivery date.
