SQM Supplier Quality Management
As a fabless design house, all of Richtek's products are manufactured by suppliers. The whole supply chain of wafer foundry, assembly, testing, and taping-reel houses must be well managed for quality. This process is managed by Richtek's SQM team. This chart reveals the SQM team roles and tasks.
The performance and risk level of each Richtek supplier are managed by several predictable indexes. The indexes help us allocate resources and optimize product delivery.
