In this paper, we report on the status of supplier rating, certification and selection systems in the US Defense Aircraft Industry. Our findings result from a range of information gathering activities over the past eighteen months including: Site visits to companies; a one day review session at Lockheed Fort Worth Company on February 7, 1994 in which 10 companies made presentations of their systems; the study of documents received from over a dozen companies pertaining to rating, certification and selection systems; and, responses to the Survey of Supplier Systems and Relationships. The purposes of this report are: • To identify and review current practices with respect to supplier rating, certification and selection systems based on our current state of knowledge; • To discuss the extent to which these systems support the process of supplier base optimization.
