Vendors providing goods and services to companies doing business in regulated environments are only
qualied to supply specic products and services. As such, these suppliers must be accurately tracked ona company’s approved vendor list (AVL). The AVL must be continually managed and monitored, a complex process that becomes exponentially more difcult as product designs and manufacturing processes changeover time. Further complexities arise as increasing numbers of suppliers interface with or are managed by different departments and divisions across the company.
How can MasterControl help you?
Here’s how MasterControl Supplier™ is giving companies the capability to efciently manage and approvevendor lists and effectively track supplier quality and supplier status.
Tracking AVL manually:
Maintaining and controllingan approved vendor list is complex and error prone,particularly when supplier quality information is kept inseparate systems or tracked manually via spreadsheets.
Centralized, connected system:
With MasterControl,all supplier status and quality information (such as non-conforming material reports) is automatically containedin a single, easy to access location. In addition toproviding an easily maintainable AVL, MasterControlSupplier features a user-friendly interface for accessingall documentation and records related to each supplier.
Complications with new parts and manufacturers:
As engineering teams develop new designs, contractmanufacturers and parts must be identied and addedto the AVL. To be placed on the AVL, a supplier must bemonitored on an ongoing basis and must successfullyfulll a number of qualications, such as supplier surveys, supplier audits, and process validation.
tracks and stores supplier information derived fromaudits, non-conformance reports, supplier deviations,and CAPAs. This electronically managed informationcan then be easily compiled for supplier qualityratings. Furthermore, suppliers can be approved usingMasterControl’s robust approval workow technology.

With MasterControl, goods or servicescan be added to the “approved to supply” list simplyby linking the goods/services to a specic supplier inMasterControl. Suppliers, conversely, can be addedthe same way. If a part is linked to a supplier that isnot approved, the link will be disabled until the supplier becomes approved or reapproved. All of this informationis easily obtainable via MasterControl’s built-in reporting
Duplication of supplier qualication efforts:
Asnew goods and services are added and as suppliers’approval status changes, accurate and currenttracking of outsourced goodsand/or services becomesincreasingly more elaborate and difcult.
MasterControl’s Web-basedplatform makes accessing supplier data easy andefcient. Geographically dispersed divisions have theability to share supplier qualication data with others inthe corporation, potentially cutting out costly duplicationof effort and speeding time to market.
