Strategic Sourcing Guide to Ships And Vessels Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Non-Military Vehicles as well as Ships And Vessels procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. 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.

Suppliers are under an enhanced pressure to offer greater quality, options that suit unique requirements and overall experience of the customer stakeholders involved.

Technology is improving productivity and creating fresh demand. Convergence of data science, automation tools, 3D printing, robotics, AI and big data has opened up multiple possibilities to better serve customers at a lower operational cost.

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

Ships And Vessels Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Ships And Vessels procurement.

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 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 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.

  • 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 Ships And Vessels
  • Political and regulatory changes pose significant risks to the category. For instance, imposition of tariffs on raw materials required to manufacture the finished goods increases costs. Similarly, restrictions on import of goods or raw materials from a particular country also contributes to significant risks. Additionally, insufficient IPR protection and product liability lawsuits lead turnout to be huge risk factors for the category
