Value creation along the supply chainAt Supply Chain Management, our aim is to add value for Siemens and its customers. Our actions are consistently based on striving for innovation, productivity, quality and availability. Together with our suppliers, we rely on a competitive and transparent supply chain. In doing so we act with foresight and responsibility. Our ”Code of Conduct” is thus based on the principles of the ’Global Compact’ of the United Nations and the International Labor Organization.
"Digital transformation does not happen of its own volition. Its clear benefit lies in making collaboration with our suppliers and customers simpler and more efficient. To this end we put our faith in both new ideas and tried-and-tested applications."Dr. Klaus Staubitzer, Siemens Chief Procurement Officer
Digitalization for digitalization's sake makes no sense for us
Innovation is teamworkOur activities are directed towards creating the maximum value for ourselves and our business partners. For this reason we are always looking for innovative suppliers who are eager to bring their technological expertise and creativity together with that of our own experts. We integrate this network into our customer projects right from the concept phase. In this way we create a crucial competitive advantage along the value chain.
We collaborate with the best
For us, the digital transformation of procurement means pursuing a carefully considered strategy and taking a smart approach to our daily business actions.
We take decisions on the basis of facts and data, and use all technological possibilities where it makes sense to do so. The important aspect here is to succeed in taking all employees with us on the journey.
