We use the Bosch “Supplier Development Program” to work with selected suppliers in joint projects on proven methods to ensure and further increase competitiveness. This enables our partners to enhance their in-house processes as well as the interfaces with Bosch.
Our suppliers are given the opportunity to attend training courses at Bosch. Some of them are also attended by our own associates. More detailed information is offered in the chapter ""training"".
We keep a tight watch on the product quality and logistical performance of our suppliers, so we can respond effectively when deviations occur. Any persistent problems will be analyzed at management level, and have to be resolved if the business relationship is to be continued.
