Strategic Sourcing Guide to Drillships Procurement

Overview

Business practices within Drillships market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Non-Military Vehicles market. Volatility in the prices of key inputs is creating multiple issues that impact procurement within Drillships category such as benchmarking and budgeting of the procurement costs.

Suppliers are under an enhanced pressure to offer greater quality, options that suit unique requirements and overall experience of the customer stakeholders involved.

Regulatory guidance on data protection and increasing concern over cybersecurity have increased the costs for suppliers as they incur additional spend on compliance and security. These additional costs have a potential to drive marginal increase in prices across the key geographies.

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

Drillships Procurement Best Practices

As market conditions become more dynamic and procurement practices get more sophisticated, category managers need to be cognizant of the best practices that work for their Drillships category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Drillships procurement best practices.

For example, Buyers should invest in benchmarking studies that help category managers to improve their knowledge on market pricing or billing rates of service providers. This helps them to not only save costs but also increase their negotiation power.

Buyers should engage with suppliers that repurchase used products at fair market value. This assists buyers to dispose of used products in a convenient manner. Also, during such repurchases, suppliers provide credits to buyers for future purchases. This reduces overall procurement costs for buyers.

Buyers should assess the level of adoption of the latest technologies by suppliers to assess cost-saving opportunities and quality that can be provided by the latter. For instance, the adoption of technologies such as cloud computing will enable suppliers to reduce their internal computing hardware requirements for operations such as CAD and CAM. This can, in turn, enable them to reduce their operating costs, thereby suppliers can offer products at lower rates to buyers.

Risks in Drillships procurement

Drillships procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Drillships 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 Drillships
  • With high adoption of lean manufacturing, the smallest of changes in the supply chain activities lead to huge losses. For instance, cargo theft, flight delays, and quality control issues leads to significant losses to both the suppliers and buyers in the category
  • Pricing terms in the contract could prove to be inadequate to safeguard the buyer from impact of a sudden increase in supplier's cost, often arising from a lack of clarity on scope of products or services to be delivered
