PPI’s experience suggests that the Supply Base Standard™ Survey is sufficient for the majority of our clients’ whose primary purpose is to determine the status of their current supplier working relations and get improvement recommendations. PPI has found that Supply Base Custom™ Survey may overwhelm some clients with too-much feedback at one time.
The Supply Base Standard™ Survey is a Survey process developed by PPI, which follows academic survey methodologies, that solicits feedback from a client’s suppliers through a confidential online questionnaire and translates the supplier questionnaire responses into a realistic view of suppliers’ perceptions of their working relations with the client.
PPI’s Supply-Base Pulse™ Survey is a customized short survey meant to focus on a client’s specific supplier-related topic. As a point of reference, PPI’s Supply Base Standard™ Survey and PPI’s Supply Base Custom™ Survey measure suppliers’ perceptions of their working relations with PPI’s clients and are centered on the Working Relations Index®.
