Supplier Performance
Harbour measures its suppliers on quality and delivery performance on a monthly basis. On-time delivery is measured by units on-time/units late (i.e. lbs, quarts). For example: If a supplier delivers 50 units on time, but the other 50 units are late, their on-time percentage would be 50%. Quality percentage is calculated using the same method. Three months in a row of performance below 93% in either category will initiate a corrective action to be sent to the supplier.

Corrective actions must be completed and returned within 30 days of notification.

When requested by Harbour Industries LLC or its customers, the supplier is required to provide test specimens for
