Based on the answers of your supplier you can properly assess whether it meets the expectations and requirements of your own organization. You can classify the various topics you ask questions about based on 'impact' and 'probability'. A combination of these two elements creates an automatically calculated "residual risk". A high residual risk means that, despite the answers given by the supplier, there is still an increased risk that something could go wrong. You can mitigate these residual risks by placing internal and external tasks on a VendorLink Planboard. These tasks are performed during the collaboration with the supplier. In this way residual risks are reduced to a minimum.
