Working relationship with a Factory – It’s just like a marriage

16/10/2020
Compatibility between a couple is the achievement not the prerequisite of the marriage

And with commitment and hard work, it will only get better as the years go on.

We would like to think the same about our working relationship with a factory.

Quality consultants or staff from big corporations tend to rely on their established checklist (which contains hundreds, sometimes thousands of checkpoints) to qualify a suitable factory to work with. That’s the proper way to do it, there is nothing wrong with it.

However, for a developing country like Vietnam, many factories aren’t equipped with enough exposure to the international supply chain requirement. If we rigidly rely on a pre-establish checklist to disqualify, the chance of match-making is extremely low.

I’d rather use the checklist as a gap analysis tool, as something we will work alongside the chosen factory.

It’s more of a goal rather than a dis-qualifying barrier.
