Price Level

This subcriterion compares relationship of a vendor's price to the market price. If the vendor's price is lower than the market price, he/she receives a good score; if it is higher than the market price he/she is assigned a poor score.

On the basis of the subcriterion "Price Level" you can compare a vendor's price to the current market price at a certain point in time.

Price History

This subcriterion compares the development of the vendor's price with the market price.

On the basis of the subcriterion "Price History", you can determine whether the vendor's price has increased or decreased over a certain period in comparison with changes in the market price over the same period.

Goods Receipt

This subcriterion is used to evaluate the quality of the material that the vendor delivers. Quality inspection takes place at the time of goods receipt.

Quality Audit

This subcriterion is used to evaluate the quality assurance system used by a company in manufacturing products.

Complaints/Rejection Level

This subcriterion is used to evaluate whether the materials delivered by the vendor are regularly found to be faulty subsequent to incoming inspection (for example, on the shop-floor) leading to additional expense and loss of time (due to loss of production, reworking etc.).

The score (QM key quality figure) is calculated in QM Quality Management and the data passed on to MM Vendor Evaluation. This key quality figure is converted for use in the Vendor Evaluation scoring system.

On-Time Delivery Performance

This subcriterion is used to determine how precisely a vendor has adhered to the specified delivery dates.

Quantity Reliability

This subcriterion is used to determine whether a vendor has delivered the quantity specified in the purchase order.

"On-Time Delivery Performance" and "Quantity Reliability" always have to be seen in conjunction. You can specify for each material (in the material master record) or for all materials (in the system settings) the minimum quantity of the ordered materials that must be delivered in order for a goods receipt to be included in the evaluation. This enables you to avoid a situation in which a punctual goods receipt involving only a small quantity of ordered materials is included in the evaluation with a good score for "On-Time Delivery Performance". If this minimum quantity is not delivered, the vendor is not awarded a score. However, in this case the vendor
