Medtronic strives for unsurpassed reliability and quality, which requires a world-class supply chain utilizing Lean Sigma methodologies. We are dedicated to aligning our continuous improvement strategies with our supply base by partnering in Supplier Development and offering Supplier Lean Sigma Training.
Medtronic trained engineers will partner with strategic Suppliers to drive process improvements throughout the value stream we share by utilizing tools such as Lean Six Sigma, Kaizen, Rapid Improvement Events, Value Stream Mapping, First Time Quality (FTQ) events, and training to perform gap analyses, reduce lead times, and reduce defects.
We offer Lean Sigma training for select Suppliers. Through this program, participants learn the methodology in a formal classroom setting, so they’re equipped to apply the knowledge to a project in their organization.
To expedite on-time invoice issuing and payments, we strive to make our invoicing and payment processes as efficient as possible. Following are details about our processes:
Invoices must be sent to the mailbox reflected in the “Bill To” details on the PO. If you support multiple Medtronic businesses, the Bill To address may be different. Always refer to the PO for the correct address where the invoice should be sent.
When you submit the purchasing invoice as an attachment to the email, it is important to use PDF or XML formatted attachments that are not encrypted or password protected. (The e-mail body should be left blank.)
Medtronic's standard payment terms are Net 90 for all goods and services. If other terms have been agreed upon, those terms will supersede the 90-Day Payment Term.
Shipment of the goods are “freight collect” via Medtronic designated mode and carrier.
