Any organization requires insight about it's suppliers in order to plan ahead as regards costs and availability of product as well as for improved efficiencies throughout the transaction process. Initially developed for the NASA Space Shuttle Program transition activities, "PrimeSupplier" software has been used by NASA to view early indicators of supplier and product line stability while identifying various project elements and programs affected by terms of multiple contracts. The software analyzes causes and effects of supply chain events with parameters based on a supplier’s financial liquidity, quality measures of performance, and other internal programmatic data relative to functional capabilities such as source, make, buy, repair, and deliver. The result is a comprehensive picture of schedule impact and funding risks from supplier obsolescence or requests for additional time-gap funding.
