KEY PROCUREMENT INSIGHTS COVERED

Strategic Sourcing Guide to Automatic Sliding Doors Procurement

Overview

Business practices within Automatic Sliding Doors market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Construction Supplies market. Construction activities and manufacturing of construction supplies are known to be a large source of emissions across the world. Regulatory and social pressures to keep emissions in check have transformed the way construction industry operates. Sustainable practices have penetrated the traditional business processes. There is an increasing demand for green buildings, low carbon concretes and other low emission construction aggregates and renewable energy solutions. All these factors are contributing to a significant change in the procurement standards and practices within the category.

Periods of macroeconomic uncertainty and increasing stringency of immigration laws are key contributors to the workforce shortage in the market. Domestic workers in developed countries often choose to pursue higher education and less cyclical employment opportunities while foreign workers return to their home countries due to tough immigration laws and economic conditions. Consequently, suppliers have had to increase labor wages to attract skilled and unskilled labor, which has increased their costs and forced them to increase their pricing.

To attract investment and drive long-term value, suppliers are building unique business models and implementing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives and stakeholder engagement programs. Such strategic initiatives are pivotal to acquire a social license to operate, generate consumer awareness, and have easy access to input commodities.

As a result, category managers need to closely monitor the Automatic Sliding Doors procurement trends and identify changes required in their procurement environment for the category.

Automatic Sliding Doors Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Automatic Sliding Doors. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Establishing strategic partnerships with suppliers allow category managers to enhance management and planning vision. By adopting a strategic engagement approach, buyers can optimize their category spend by streamlining the category management process. For instance, a risk/reward-sharing approach for construction management providers helps buyers to transfer ownership of projects to service providers.

Large firms should prefer to engage in long-term contracts with a preferred set of suppliers that can provide integrated solutions for all scales of projects (small, mid-sized, or large). Partnerships with preferred service providers lead to category-level innovations and enable buyers to avail customized services.

Service providers may outsource certain aspects of the project if they lack the required expertise or to expedite the project progress. If the subcontractor is not covered by a reliable liability insurance or does not abide by the same terms and conditions that were laid down for the main contractors, then it can hinder the main contractor's ability to perform its services. It may also entangle the buyers in legal complications and negative publicity.

Risks in Automatic Sliding Doors procurement

Automatic Sliding Doors procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Automatic Sliding Doors procurement. Some examples include:


  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Automatic Sliding Doors
  • Acceptance of an unfinished design for timely implementation of the project is a common scenario in the construction industry. However, this leads to defects in the design and failure to meet the prescribed standards and legal requirements
  • Inaccurate estimates of resources and timelines, poor project planning, increase in scope of the project, changes and variations in the project or lack of clarity on responsibilities/ scope of work may result in buyers incurring additional cost on the project that exceeds their planned budget
