Need Identification and Specification, and Quality

Week Eight – Need Identification and Specification, and Quality

 

In this week’s lesson, we will look into what starts a procurement request: Indentifying a need.  A firm will identify a need that fulfills a purpose within an organization and aligns with its corporate strategy.  We will also learn how a firm specifies its needs into certain attributes for the product or service that will fulfill the ultimate need.  We will also learn about quality; how to define quality, the costs of quality, and learn of quality management standards and techniques which will ensure to sustain quality and meet customer requirements.
