Strategic Sourcing Guide to Reliability Testing Procurement

Overview

The market for Operation of Industrial Facilities and its sub-segments such as Reliability Testing are at an interesting intersection. With advancement in technology, service providers are employing diverse tools in their operations to identify opportunities for optimization and greater collaboration with the customers.

Suppliers have historically gained handsome margin-on-margin by sub-contracting a part of their work to another contractor. However, Buyers are now delving deep into the business models of suppliers and negotiating hard to avoid further sub-contracting. In cases where it is imperative to sub-contract, category managers are employing should-cost models to keep supplier margins on sub-contracting to the minimal.

The category has historically lagged in tech adoption due to inadequate skillsets of majority of workforce and the perennial requirement to reduce facilities related cost. Therefore, suppliers who have demonstrated technological prowess to achieve efficiencies are being preferred over traditional vendors.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Reliability Testing is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

Reliability Testing Procurement Best Practices

Reliability Testing 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 Reliability Testing procurement strategy.

For example, Buyers should set a baseline against which the performance of suppliers can be benchmarked along with setting measurable/quantifiable KPIs. Defined KPIs provides suppliers with clarity on the scope. Besides setting standards for operations, pricing, and performance, KPIs must provide tangible goals in terms of the quality of solutions.

Buyers should evaluate the true costs of each product and service within the scope of work for supplier, and also understand the hidden costs associated. This can help them to set accurate targets for cost reduction for their suppliers, and effectively monitor and evaluate their performance against industry benchmarks.

Investing in benchmarking studies that help category managers enhance their knowledge on pricing or billing rates of suppliers allows them to not only save costs, but also negotiate better with suppliers. For example, while negotiating for bundled services, they can save significantly on a single service by cross-verifying rates quoted by suppliers against industry benchmarks.

Risks in Reliability Testing procurement

Reliability Testing procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Reliability Testing 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
  • Irregular inspections of facilities and installations can lead to the failure of electrical and maintenance-related equipment. This leads to downtime and interrupts the day-to-day operations of the buyers, thereby resulting in huge losses
  • Workers may have to handle hazardous substances/materials. Non-compliance to the safety standards and working without using the personal protective equipment can result in accidents and affect operations. Workers are also required to work at heights while carrying out cleaning activities. Non-adoption of precautionary measures by workers can lead to fatalities or severe injuries, thus negatively impacting the reputation of buyers
