Supply Chain Glossary - R


Abbreviation for request for quote.

A term used to convey the concept that it is beneficial and more cost-effective to take the necessary steps the first time to ensure that a good or service meets its requirements than to provide a good or service that will need rework or not meet customers' needs. In other words, an organization should engage in defect prevention rather than defect detection.
