Strategic Sourcing Guide to Incubator Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Engineering Products and Equipment as well as Incubator procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. Suppliers are under an enhanced pressure to offer greater quality, options that suit unique requirements and overall experience of the customer stakeholders involved.

Several structural changes including M&As and vertical integration efforts of suppliers are characterizing the broader market. Such strategic developments can erode the strength of previously established supplier relationships due to changed realities in the supplier's ecosystem. At the same time, buyers may also find opportunities to onboard new suppliers with a wider range of offerings or better contract terms for .

Markets across the globe are reeling under shortage of professionals and workforce that have relevant skills and training. Minimum wages and stringent regulations are compelling suppliers to increase their employee expenses which are expected to have an inflationary impact on buyers' procurement cost.

Category managers need to take note of the potential of these developments and reassess the changes required in their procurement practices.

Incubator Procurement Best Practices

Incubator procurement best practices are moving towards a level of sophistication which is typically seen in traditional procurement categories. Category managers now have an attractive opportunity to adapt the best practices seen within this category as well as those being leveraged in other non-related categories. This report summarizes the best practices picked from across multiple categories that could work well for category managers involved with Incubator procurement strategy.

For example, Strong R&D focus is the sign of a supplier committed to enhancing the quality and cost proposition of its solutions. Buyers should collaborate with such suppliers for development of low-cost but highly efficiency products that can bring their OPEX down.

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 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.

Risks in Incubator procurement

Incubator procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Incubator 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 Incubator
  • 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
  • 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
