Strategic Sourcing Guide to Electrical discharge machines Procurement

Overview

Business practices within Electrical discharge machines market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Engineering Products and Equipment market. Suppliers of Electrical discharge machines are moving up the value chain - both organically as well as through M&As. Their portfolios are increasingly being diversified with the objective of offering integrated solutions that go beyond just Electrical discharge machines. Even buyers are engaging vendors who can act as a one-stop solution provider across their geographic footprint. Such strategic engagements can help buyers with savings associated with economies of scale and management of a much smaller supplier base.

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 Electrical discharge machines procurement trends and identify changes required in their procurement environment for the category.

Electrical discharge machines Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Electrical discharge machines procurement.

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 have adopted a global delivery model as it reduces buyers' risk. In this model, any disaster/emergency at any operating facility of supplier will result in the work being transferred to a different facility, thereby ensuring continuity of the project and reduced risk for buyers. This model also provides buyers access to skilled labor from across the globe, thereby improving the quality of engineering products provided by the supplier.

Competitive bidding as a cost optimization tool is extremely potent but should be carefully deployed only when there is no significant differentiation among Electrical discharge machines suppliers.

Risks in Electrical discharge machines procurement

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


  • Contract-related risks where unfavorable credit terms may severly penalize buyers for delayed payments or entitle the supplier to demand pre-payments or shorten the payment terms are not very common in the category but they do exist in certain situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question
  • Crude oil is one of the major factors that determines the risks associated with the category as fuel costs account for a major portion of the suppliers' cost structure. Volatility in the prices of crude oil significantly impacts the overall costs incurred in the category
  • 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 Electrical discharge machines
