Development of the Policy

  • Development of the Policy

    • Enterprise team representing all Divisions.
    • Goal to commonize how we handle rejects.
    • Develop consistent, enterprise approach.
    • Encourage suppliers to be pro-active, take responsibility for their quality.


1.0 In order to encourage suppliers to be open and honest about problems incurred with non-conforming, or “suspected” non-conforming material, the following policy is effective with the approval date of this procedure. John Deere reserves the right to waive this policy should the supplier repeatedly abuse this privilege. A supplier’s Achieving Excellence quality PPM rating can be positively impacted if a supplier proactively contacts the [Supplier Quality Organization] about a known or “suspected” quality problem. The following conditions must be met. The supplier: 1.1 Contacts [Supplier Quality Organization], prior to the point of use (defined as being within John Deere. If notification is not received prior to point of use, see section 2. If improperly labeled parts see section 4. 1.2 Conducts the investigation, sorting or reclaim personally, or through a qualified third party. 1.3 Reports the results of the investigation, sorting or reclaim, to the [John Deere TQE], or his representative prior to leaving the [John Deere unit] 1.4 Provide an acceptable corrective action in writing, in a timely manner (per section 5 of JDWW SQP-01), to ensure that the defect cannot occur again in the future. (*Ref: JDS-G223 section 5.12) 1.5 The appropriate [John Deere TQE], is the sole judge of timeliness and acceptability of the corrective action. 1.6 This policy does not relieve the supplier of any financial, commercial, or material responsibilities. 1.7 Once disposition of nonconformance is complete, the CQE is responsible for any PPM adjustments requested by supplier. Quality Rating Impact: If the above criteria are met, (0) zero pieces will be rejected against the supplier’s quality rating regardless of the number of non-conforming parts found, returned, or reworked.

  • NOTE: Adjustments to Achieving Excellence numbers can only occur with (60) sixty days from the original date of reject (applies to section 1.0 and 2.0).



2.0 If John Deere discovers non-conforming pieces, and the supplier responds per sections 1.2 through 1.6, only the material actually found non-conforming will be counted against the supplier’s quality rating. Note: Reclaimed parts will be counted against the supplier’s quality rating. Only the exact amount of non-conforming material will be recorded if the supplier’s response is timely. 3.0 If the supplier and the [John Deere unit] find it necessary to return a defective lot of material for sorting, the entire quantity returned will be initially considered as non-conforming and will count against that supplier’s quality rating. The supplier can request adjustment to these figures by reporting results of the sort and complying with sections 1.2, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6.

  • 4.0 If mismarked/mislabeled containers or incorrectly packaged containers are shipped to Deere with a wrong part number or wrong parts in box or are packaged incorrectly, all parts will be counted against the supplier as (1) one piece and (1) one occurrence if a supplier ensures the part packaging or labeling is corrected by a method acceptable to the John Deere Tactical Quality Engineer (TQE). The TQE may request corrective action at the time of the reject (NCCA). The John Deere TQE reserves the right to count all pieces as non-conforming if issues of mislabeling/packaging are chronic or poorly handled.

  • 5.0 If containers that are shipped to Deere with a box containing 2 or more different part numbers, they will be counted against supplier as the total number of incorrect part numbers that affect line production. This number will be at least (1) one non-conforming piece and the total number may or may not be equal to the total number of incorrect parts in the box. Only that number of parts that affected line production should be counted against the supplier’s quality rating. Deere may request corrective action at the time of the reject (NCCA), in compliance with sections 1.4 and 1.5. Deere reserves the right to count all pieces as non-conforming if issues of mixed part shipments are chronic or poorly handled.

  • 6.0 If non-conforming parts are shipped to Deere, but are still able to be used on the manufacturing line, they will be counted against the supplier’s quality rating as follows: If the supplier provides a deviation for parts to be used “as-is”, only the parts that affected line production should be counted as non-conforming parts. Deere may request corrective action at the time of the reject (NCCA), in compliance with sections 1.4 and 1.5. Deere reserves the right to count all pieces as non-conforming if issues of deviation-requiring shipments are chronic or poorly handled.





The supplier calls his Supply Management Specialist/Quality Engineer and tells him / her that they discovered they had a problem with their parts. They would like to come in and inspect the inventory of their parts. After inspection they find 20 parts which were bad and need to be returned. No defects were found on tractors.

  • The Policy is intended to:

    • Encourage suppliers to be proactive.
    • Suppliers made more accountable for their defects.
    • Emphasis is on root cause analysis / corrective action.
    • It is a Consistent, fair, enterprise approach!


  • How can we improve Supplier Quality?

    • Ensure defect investigations are accurate and fair.
    • Investigate the level of contamination, where was defect found?
    • Encourage the suppliers to support production
    • Encourage supplier to contain, then correct.
    • Emphasize effective root cause analysis / prevention of defects.
    • Be tough on the Supplier’s Corrective Action Reports.
      • Does the action prevent the defect from occurring again?
      • Could the defect occur on a sister part, same feature, if so fix it too!
  • The QRIP Policy is a privilege not a right. Don’t let it be abused
