Strategic Sourcing Guide to Grain Analyzers Procurement

Overview

Business practices within Grain Analyzers market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Engineering Products and Equipment market. Customers are expecting service and experience levels which are at par with what ecommerce and consumer sectors of today offer. Moreover, competition keeps intensifying and demand and supply dynamics keep shifting.

Suppliers of Grain Analyzers 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 Grain Analyzers. 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.

Procurement costs for Grain Analyzers are highly impacted by an increase in the costs associated with the value chain of Grain Analyzers, such as logistics, labor cost and energy. Additionally, outdated assets are also increasing the cost for suppliers.

Grain Analyzers 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 Grain Analyzers. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, 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.

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.

Buyers must have a clear understanding of the subcontracting policies, if any, of Grain Analyzers suppliers. Factors such as cost incurred, service quality, adherence to timelines, and regulatory compliance of subcontractors employed by suppliers should be carefully assessed prior to engagement.

Risks in Grain Analyzers procurement

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


  • 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
  • With changing technologies, the manufacturing, packaging and labelling requirements have become more stringent than ever across geographies globally. RFID tags, temperature sensors, and barcode scanners, have become common requirements across the category. There is also an increase in the adoption of technologies such as AI and IoT. Therefore, suppliers incur excessive costs to keep upgrading their technology and to ensure maintenance of these technologies across various stages of the product category
  • 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
