Industry experts acknowledge that periodically reviewing procurement best practices and adopting learnings from across procurement categories can help procurement teams respond to market needs in a more agile way. This report combines our experience of other categories with Marine Instruments procurement insights and hand picks best practices that can work for category managers delving in this market.

For example, Buyers should engage with suppliers that have recycling capability. Recycling capability of the suppliers will lower their production costs which will be passed on to buyers. Additionally, the recycling capability will contribute in furthering the sustainability goals of the buyers' organization.

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.

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.

Risks in Marine Instruments procurement

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