Strategic scorecard:

Velocity - PO date vs.Receipt Date has been replaced by Replenishment Lead-Time.  This metric is the average days required to ship after receipt of Alto-Shaam purchase order (or release).  The lead-time excludes transit time. 

The changes to the Strategic scorecard will be reflected in the Q1-2015 scorecard which will be issued in mid April.

We will continue to evaluate the supplier scorecard and the metrics used to insure that it accurately measures a supplier’s performance and that the scorecard continues to be a vital tool in driving continuous improvement within our supply base.  Please contact your Alto-Shaam purchasing representative if you should have any question.

Automatic Debit of Nonconforming Material

Effective April 1, 2014 Alto-Shaam will begin automatically issuing debits for nonconforming material that has a value of $100 or less - the material will not be returned to the supplier. The value will be based upon the quantity and value at the time the nonconformance has been identified. The purpose of this change is to reduce our time and cost associated with such low value nonconformance’s. Please contact your Alto-Shaam purchasing representative should you have any questions.
