Supplier Assessment

The Stunsl Group’s supply chain auditing practice was established in 2007 at the request of one of its clients.   Stunsl is now one of two approved 3rd party auditing / assessment service provider for one of the largest OEMs in the semiconductor equipment industry. The auditing / assessment practice utilizes the Standardized Supplier Quality Assessment (SSQA) tool developed by Sematech. The tool is a combination of ISO 9001, the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award, and Motorola Quality System Review and provides a consistent approach for evaluating a company’s operational strengths and opportunities for improvement. The tool is also often used by Stunsl on new client engagements to help identify or validate areas in which a client has request help.
