The purpose of this article is to show how Chrysler adopted Japanese-style supplier relations and the benefits that Chrysler realized from this change. Manufacturer-Supplier Relationships The manufacturer-supplier relationship greatly differs between American firms and Japanese firms.

In most American firms, manufacturers design products without input from suppliers. Suppliers are picked only on the basis of product cost. In contrast, Japanese firms embrace a partnership model. This model is characterized by a strong inter-locking relationship between manufacturers and their suppliers. The Japanese call this relationship keiretsu. Chrysler realized it needed to improve its competitiveness if it wanted to stay afloat. Chrysler decided to conduct a benchmarking study of product development and manufacturing at the successful Honda Motor Corporation.

Chrysler found that Honda was organized into product development teams whereas Chrysler was organized by function. This approach looked foreign to Chrysler until they acquired the American Motors Corporation in AMC had implemented some Honda-like manufacturer-supplier practices and integrated team approach.

Chrysler knew it needed drastic changes to survive, and decided it would transform itself into an American keiretsu. Presourcing and Target Costing — Chrysler now chooses suppliers early in the vehicle development stage and gives suppliers significant responsibility for designing a given component or system.

This method referred to as presourcing speeds up the vehicle development process. Chrysler also adopted target costing which involves determining what price the market will pay for the vehicle and then working backwards to calculate the allowable costs for the vehicles components and systems.

This new focus on cost rather than price has created a positive situation with suppliers. Manufacturers and suppliers now work hand in hand to meet common cost goals.

Chrysler makes it profitable for suppliers to participate in SCORE by sharing the dollar savings generated by adopted ideas. This practice encourages communication and cooperation between Chrysler and its suppliers.

Chrysler and its suppliers share a common e-mail system that facilitates communication. Chrysler also holds quarterly and annual meetings with its suppliers to discuss important issues. As long as a supplier performs well and meets target costs, Chrysler will give them business forever.

Benefits of Keiretsu Chrysler has realized many benefits by adopting the principals of Japanese keiretsus. Some benefits include a shortened product development cycle, reduced overall costs of the vehicle program, reduced procurement costs, and increased market share and profitability.

They have radically pruned the ranks of their suppliers and given more work to the survivors in return for lower prices. And by getting their remaining suppliers to deliver parts just in time and to take responsibility for quality, they have managed to slash inventories, reduce defects, and greatly improve the efficiency of their own production lines. Now many manufacturers are striving to wring even greater benefits from their suppliers. They would like to involve suppliers much more deeply in product development and to enlist them in the drive for continual improvements of production processes. The prizes they are seeking: ever more innovative products, ever faster product development, and ever lower costs.
