Background information

The Supplier Operations department’s mission is to secure material availability at the right cost, right quality and right time for our customers. To realize this mission, we need to set ourselves up for success to navigate the volume ramp, while managing the growing installed base & supply chain complexity in a smarter way. This means that we need to drive both structural step changes and continuous improvements in our core processes at the same time. Your role is to ensure effective and efficient execution of the (operational) procurement activities by for example arranging adequate material supply, resolving operational procurement issues, driving cost down / cost efficiency and ensuring master data control.

Your assignment

We have a variety of strategic partners that are specialized in certain capabilities (e.g. milling, turning, welding, assembly, electrical integration, etc.). These partners are categorized in product families. Suppliers within these product families can deliver comparable final products and therefore have the same capabilities. However, it is not always known what the level of the capabilities are. What if we need a product that requires milling, turning, welding and assembly? Which supplier would make the best match with our requirements?

If we had an easy method to map this in our department, it is more likely that New Product Introductions end up at the most suitable supplier first time right. This would ultimately result in a situation where products are delivered in the best quality for the right cost. We have already identified a statistical method that solves the question on how to compare and score supplier’s capabilities. However, the challenge is how we can bring this theory into practice.

The thesis/internship should:

- Result in a method how to score suppliers on a scale so that we can compare them with each other.
- Give guidelines to our category teams on how to use the method during an audit at the supplier.
- Propose ideas on how suppliers could improve in relation to supplier development.

Your profile

To be eligble for this internship you are:

  • A final year's bachelor or master student in Supply Chain Management or Industrial Engineering;
  • Experienced in statistics;
  • Social skilled to interact with multiple stakeholders and suppliers;
  • Proficient in English, both written and verbally.

This is a graduation project for 3 to 6 months, minimum 3 days per week. The start date is as soon as possible.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.
