Learning Goal: I’m working on a other case study and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Welcome to APC Europe!You are replacing Maggie, who was fired for her inability to handle the quality problems at Branco, a major supplier for APC.APC’s production manager, Eric Koendeeile, has demanded a new supplier replace Branco, and your job is to produce an RFP for these parts and/or services. There are a series of issues in this case that must be addressed by any potential supplier submitting a RFP including cost, quality, quantity, customization, and delivery performance. APC has produced a set of Supplier Performance Scoring Criteria that must be included in a RFP, and the winning bidder must be able to obtain at least a grade of three for all Quality, Delivery, and Continuous Improvement criteria (see specific information contained in case).For examples of RFPs, please refer to Carson Case and any of the RFP examples and Excel spreadsheets available in Canvas links in this module. Your job, as the replacement for Maggie, is to produce a RFP that can be used to inform potential suppliers of the specifications and expectations for these products. The templates (use any of our samples or select from other sources) can be very useful for establishing a framework for your RFP, and then customize it for APC and their needs. You will have to “clean up” these original templates, because they were designed and used for companies other than APC!!The RFP you are creating will be sent out to suppliers; do not make up any response from any supplier, however. You need to lead your suppliers to prepare adequate response to your RFP. So, providing them with a spreadsheet template for how they should respond to your RFP would make sense. There are critical issues in the RFP; how do you ensure the supplier addresses those specific issues? There are many ways to do this, but possibly a simple way is to provide sample cost templates with the critical areas listed in the template. Again,do not include any data in your uploaded spreadsheets for processing the completed RFP. Think through what APC needs as information on this type of product.As always, use sections with headings! End with a concluding section that includes your specific learning(s) from the assignment. Write well, use good organization and paragraphs, and grammar and punctuation. Avoid use of first person writing, split infinitives, and other grammar mistakes.
