The supply and sourcing team is responsible for the supply chain of components and products in CellaVision. The work involves Customer Order handling, Manufacturing, Purchasing, Strategic Purchasing, Inventory planning, and Production planning. Continuously fulfilling Customer demand and securing short- and long-term supply with the right quality and cost is key for the team.
The Supply & Sourcing team works continually to reduce manufacturing costs for CellaVision products by finding the right partner and by implementing regular efficiency improvements to achieve as low a total price as possible. This work involves an in-depth partnership with important suppliers. The partnership includes implementing a Lean program with cost gains that benefit both parties. Other important areas for reducing manufacturing costs are the choice of components and materials, which takes place in focused collaboration with suppliers, the hardware team in the innovation department, and the strategic purchase.
Supply & Sourcing belongs in the Devices & Software division of CellaVision.
