SHORT AUDITS FOR
QUALIFICATION OF SUPPLIERS
SHORT AUDIT AND DESIGN TO COST MODERATION
EVALUTION ON THE SUPPLIER’S PREMISES
The brief audit, also called the supplier audit, in turn known as a customer audit from a supplier viewpoint, is a process audit that evaluates the actual processing and quality assurance processes on the supplier's premises. FOCUSON on the supplier's premises.
DESIGN TO COST
The aim of the Design to Cost method (DTC method) is to assure the profitability and cost budgets starting at the early stage of product development and continuing right across the entire product life cycle. Easily 80% of production costs are defined by product costs and development. It is precisely here – in the very early stages of product design and product development, and in consultation with suppliers – that our FOCUSON moderators apply the Design to Cost method. Functionality, feasibility and quality as well as compliance with deadlines are all treated as matters of equal importance. The aim is to achieve an economical product and process development process as well as a short 'Time-to-Market' set of competitive advantages.

News & best practice
We have saved the best until last.
Taking a look is well worth doing.
Defects cannot be excluded altogether
With our customers, we are connected by a successful partnership extending back over many years. The fact that this can give rise to quality problems is something that cannot be eliminated altogether in a manufacturing context, nor in the automotive industry. However, if something still happens, it is important to have a reliable partner to call upon. One who can handle assignments and the often challenging task profiles associated with them, and can do so quickly and professionally.
Technical engineers for hardware and software
Our client is an IT security business that provides services to the semiconductor industry. They produce systems for equipping the wafers used in smartphone displays. With selected candidates, FOCUSON Personnel Management was able to satisfy the requirements of this client, recruiting technical engineers for hardware as well as software, to develop these systems.
Do you know what NDT stands for? NDT or ‘non-destructive testing’ is used on materials or welded seams to detect cracks and inclusions. The professional designation for this is: NDT inspector. These are sought-after technical specialists, ones that are almost impossible to find on the labour market. However, for our client, through our international network, we succeeded in recruiting two specialists from Slovenia with expertise from pipeline construction and the laying of oil pipelines.
Acute personnel shortage
If several specialist staff fall away from one day to the next, a personnel services provider with a large network is the business you need to contact. For an internationally active logistics provider, FOCUSON Personnel Management was able within a very short space of time to refill the job vacancies with skilled export planners, customs declaration specialists and clerical staff.
