This case details how two leading companies in the automotive manufacturing industry, Toyota and Honda, develop close-knit and sustainable relationships with their supply base.

Another way in which these companies maintain relationships is by closely monitoring and evaluating suppliers’ performance. Honda monitors their critical supply base with monthly scorecards that evaluates them extensively on a wide range of criteria. When suppliers encounter issues and miss their targets, Honda immediately demands that their suppliers, often senior management, determine the root cause of the problem and put the necessary steps in place to solve it.
