Valuable documents

Various documents are supplied from the suppliers during the purchase. Some of these are delivered to the accounting unit (Delivery note, original invoice, etc.) and some are archived by the purchasing unit (certificate, manual, etc.).


If the documents are categorized according to the type of valuable documents ( manual, conformity, MSDS, health compliance, etc.) and scanned with description and dates ( certificate date, expiry date, etc.) on the ERP system, can be acted on for the date of certificate finished materials.



Corporate memory

Experiences in various projects and/or units need to be spread throughout the company. The following example will help clarify the subject;


"The programs downloaded from the links on the internet during the Pocket PC period were installed from the outside of the phones and this was very troublesome. In addition, when new versions of applications were released, it was necessary to follow up and repeat the same process each time.


Thanks to the level of experience and knowledge Apple has gained on the laptop, Apple has produced iPhone and iPad models. And the AppStore application was first developed in iPhone models. The Apple company has solved the problem of installing and updating the application on the Pocket PC board with the AppStore application, and it has revolutionized the industry. Later, it applied to iPad models with the same infrastructure. Many applications, such as this one, were only available in iOS operating systems.

But the new developments in the models with this iOS operating system that it produces have not been transferred to the Laptops. Recognizing this, he developed the AppStore application within the breakthrough MacOs. In other words, he turned the experience into a cycle within the institution.


As a result, corporate memory was spread across all units. This gave the company a lot of added value. "


By way of this example, corporate memory should be spread throughout the company as composite containers. Experienced experiences should not be confidential and circulated within the organization. The team should be the central quality control group that will play a leading role in the coordination of the experience cycle.



Cross-trainings of intra-project and inter-project units

Mutual training in all project units (and possibly central units) in the form of intra-company presentations (or in different forms) will be very useful in terms of developing intercommunication. At this point, each unit will be able to empathize and understand the problems of one another, and chain problems can be avoided.


Preventing the problem is easier and less costly than solving it after it happens.


By taking this one step further and cross-training between projects according to the same understanding, the number and level of sample applications will increase.



Participation in fairs in the sector

Following the innovations in the sector, the presence of currently working suppliers in the sector and the search for new suppliers is vital for the development of the purchasing department.


For this reason, it is important that purchasing unit employees participate in fair organizations organized at certain intervals in the sector and in different cities.


In other words, the exhibition organizations will also make a significant contribution to the development of the supplier's guide.
