In a world of ever-increasing costs and price pressures from customers, companies are focusing on cost-control and streamlining efficiencies more than ever. Supply chains are continuing to expand, making it increasingly difficult and expensive for companies to effectively manage their supplier base.

Those with a critical eye on quality must be selective in the criteria and techniques used to select and monitor suppliers. How do you ensure suppliers' standards meet yours, and where do you start?

• How to prepare an effective audit plan
• What to look for when performing supplier audits
• Who should participate in the audit process
• What should happen once the audit is completed
