4. Use a single supplier for any one item.

Quality relies on consistency – the less variation you have in the input, the less variation you'll have in the output.

Look at suppliers as your partners in quality. Encourage them to spend time improving their own quality – they shouldn't compete for your business based on price alone.

Analyze the total cost to you, not just the initial cost of the product.

Use quality statistics to ensure that suppliers meet your quality standards.
