What to Look For in Supplier Audits
Tim and Fred discuss the importance of audits to assess the supplier capabilities and determine whether a supplier can consistently meet your quality and reliability requirements.

- Can you audit a supplier without a deep understanding of their manufacturing processes?
- Why process yields and inspection results are not sufficient evidence of a capable production process.
- The link between process parameters, process control, and production output capability.
