Events that will have a medium- to long-term impact on the company’s procurement, compared to the present, issues related to Taiwan and “economic stagnation/depression” are high. “Russia-Ukraine problem” and “China’s lockdown” ranked high
Procurement anxiety due to supplier bankruptcy closure, more than 70% answered “feeling risk”
It can be seen that about half are reviewing the region (country or area) of the supplier, and about half are proceeding.
By category of procured items subject to review, “electronic parts” accounted for the highest percentage at 29.8%, followed by “materials” at 22.6%.
In terms of review policy, the most common answer was “diversify domestic procurement sources,” followed by “change overseas
procurement sources to domestic ones.”
The most common hurdles in reconsidering the regions of procurement are “costs do not match” in Japan, and “quality level does not match” in overseas. “There is no time for procurement staff” also reached 40% in domestic reviews
The progress of reviewing suppliers, “progressing according to plan” remains at the 10% level for all procured items
In the previous announcement, we outlined the impact of changes in social conditions on the supply chain and management of the
manufacturing industry, such as “over 80% impact on sales and profits” and “need to review procurement and purchasing strategies in the medium to long term.” and severity. This time, we are confirming the examination and implementation status of more in-depth
Approximately 70% of the survey respondents answered that they “feel the risk” of the bankruptcy and business closure risks of suppliers. While the price of aluminum and other materials continues to soar, suppliers such as processing companies are unable to sufficiently pass on selling prices to manufacturers, dependence on one
company/industry, lack of successors and labor, etc. are intertwined with multiple factors. there is. It is speculated that manufacturers also feel a sense of crisis in this situation.
In addition, approximately half of the companies have started reviewing the countries/regions of their suppliers. It was found that the diversification of procurement sources is proceeding with a wide range of policies. On the other hand, progress has been significantly delayed, and quality and cost reconciliations were among the top issues. In transactions between manufacturers and suppliers in the Japanese manufacturing industry, there are many cases where the required standards, including quality, are not defined or verbalized, and are supported by experience and tacit knowledge based on long-term mutual contact. The change ahead comes with a heavy load. In order to ensure the continuity of the manufacturing industry as a whole, we were again able to see that there are various issues such as eliminating the dependence on individual skills and turning tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge.
