Raw Material Handling
A proper Raw Material Program provides a gateway of assurance to consistency in finished goods. The critical principles built into Irvine Scientific’s program incorporate the belief that the management of the Raw Material Program and supply chain are the foundation for all things quality. In Irvine Scientific’s program, we practice the following fundamentals:
Dual Sourcing of Raw Material - Dual sourcing translates to lower risk, mitigates out-of-stock situations, and improves inventory management. Whenever possible, at least 2 qualified vendors are approved for each raw material.
Sourcing of the Highest Grade Materials - High compendia grade components assures the highest purity and consistency of product.
Customer-Specific Raw Material Requirements - Irvine Scientific recognizes that customer-specific requests exist, and as a result, we have a system in place to support custom raw material sourcing and/or specifications. Irvine Scientific takes a flexible and collaborative approach in custom raw material control to meet customer needs.
Continuous Vendor Improvement - Irvine Scientific practices on-going, continuous, and pro-active quality monitoring of vendors, which provides us with control and advance preparation in informing our customers with change notifications.
