  • PURCHASING POLICY NOTIFICATION: Product quality remains a top priority for JTEKT and all of our suppliers. Poor quality causes inefficiencies and disruptions not only for JTEKT manufacturing lines but those of our customers. This is a costly expense for everyone.

    In order to put more emphasis on prevention and importance of dealing with discrepant material, effective immediately, we will apply a $250 or €200 charge for all justified complaint-type DMR’s (Discrepant Material Reports) that result in chargebacks to the supplier. This is to cover the administrative tasks for the handling and follow up of these complaints. There is a delay of 60 days before this charge will be applied to the supplier’s account. This will allow for any detailed discussions between the supplier and JTEKT. This policy will be consistent for all divisions of JTEKT North American manufacturing plants as well as Koyo Europe and Koyo Asia.

  • 3/4/2011 - System Updates - Dear Supplier we are pleased to inform you about some new enhancements regarding the Koyo Bearings Discrepant Material Reporting system, (DMR).

    When responding to a DMR suppliers will have the following "edit" functionality.
    1. A SAVE feature has been added. Suppliers can save data at any time during the process. Once data is saved, Koyo will receive notice. This feature is important during the containment phase of the 8D or 3D. This is especially helpful in situations where material cannot be sorted in one day. Suppliers can now update the D3 section with containment data.
    2. Loss of Data: Previously supplier data would be lost if a Koyo plant returned the 8D or 3D response. The system has been enhanced to retain supplier edits.
    3. Editing the 8D or 3DSuppliers would lose the ability to edit an 8D or 3D when a DRM was returned by Koyo. Suppliers now have capability to edit data, except for previously approved 8D or 3D phases.

    For additional instruction or materials related to these topics please visit the Koyo Supplier Network.

    Regards,
    Koyo Supplier Development
