Category driver

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to perform an exhaustive analysis of supplier's capacity to handle the rapid surge in demand. It has been observed that many buyers whose product's demand is impacted by the performance of the economy often experience a rapid surge in the demand for their products. For instance, the demand for automobiles is often impacted strongly by the performance of the underlying economy. Therefore, buyers must perform a comprehensive analysis of supplier's ability to handle the surge in demand, especially when the term of the contract is long (long-term contracts are more vulnerable to unexpected surges in demand relative to short-term contracts). Additionally, buyers can evaluate the surge handling capacity of the supplier by inspecting supplier's facility and checking for the possibility of additional shifts, underutilized or unutilized machinery, and technological capabilities of suppliers.
