Continuous monitoring requirements are defined below. The table below shows each supplier and the items
that NITCO will monitor. The Supplier Quality Performance Reporting System is described in section 7.0 .
The items listed below with an asterisk beside them are included in the Supplier Performance Reporting
System.
1. Quality System Audit - Specified key suppliers are required to have a quality systems audit performed by
NITCO every other year beginning 2004 (unless the supplier is ISO 9000/QS 9000 Certified or NITCO has
not purchased products/services from the supplier within the past year).

performance by any supplier. Purchasing and Quality Assurance Departments will review the audit results and
provide the necessary feedback to the supplier. (Applies to ALL suppliers)

Sections with an average score below 80 will require a written corrective action plan and
documentation that verify the deficiencies have been corrected. Timing for completion of corrective actions

IN PRINTED FORMAT.

8-D

The 8-D form can be obtained by contacting the NITCO Quality Department.
Signed PIR should be completed and faxed to the Quality Department within 24 hours of
concern notification and containment of subject parts must take place immediately.
Completed 8-D should be completed and returned to the Quality Engineering Department
within 14 days of the concern notification.
Note 1: The above 8-D timing requirements are guidelines to be adhered to by each supplier. Any deviation
to the above timing requirements must be agreed upon by NITCO and the supplier on a case by case basis or
be subject to additional point deductions from the supplier's quarterly PPM score.

Response Time Scoring for Quarterly Performance Reporting System The refusal of any supplier to provide personnel for rework or re-inspection of defects per occurrence.
If NITCO requests the supplier to provide personnel to rework or re-inspect product at our
facility or our customer's facility, and the supplier refuses to adhere to the request, then the Supplier will have
(18) points deducted from the overall quarterly supplier rating score and will be charged all rework and sort
time. These points will be deducted for each occurrence.

*4. On-Time Delivery - Specified key suppliers are required to meet 98% on-time delivery performance. NITCO
monitors on-time delivery and uses this information to apply scoring in the quarterly supplier performance
rating. Delivery non-conformances will be tracked by attainment of meeting the weekly/monthly order. Each
point will count as an occurrence and will be subject to all monetary charges unless prior arrangements are
made with and approved by the Materials Supervisor.
*5. Number of Quality Concerns - Specified suppliers are required to meet product/material quality expectations,
measured in parts per million (PPM). Supplier part/material quality is monitored and reported as part of the
Quarterly Supplier Performance Reporting System.

PPM calculations are based on the total number of defective parts or amount of defective
material divided by total number of parts or amount of material received, multiplied by 1 million.
Parts/materials are counted as defective when NITCO personnel are required to perform rework or reinspection or if the end-user reports PPM to NITCO. Certified stock is required for the first shipment of
product/material after the concern. NITCO will verify the certified stock and if any defect(s) are found in the
certified stock, the entire lot will count against the supplier's PPM.
6. NIST Trace ability - Calibration service suppliers are required to have trace-ability to the National Institute of
Standards and Trace-ability (NIST) and be Guide 25 certified.
Note 2: If Quality Performance Rating (PPM) score falls below 80% attainment, see 8.0 Supplier
Improvement Process.
