1.Conduct a background check on your potential supplier. Make sure they really are the factory, and not just an intermediary entity.
2.Audit your factory.
3.Make sure the factory is the right fit for you, particularly in terms of size.
4.Avoid paying 100% upfront and use a good OEM Agreement.
5.Make sure your own company follows its buying procedures.
6.Define very clearly what you want from your Chinese factory and make sure that the factory understands what you want.
7.Regularly perform quality control inspections, as appropriate.
8.Stay with the same supplier as long as the relationship is good, rather than abandoning them to save a few pennies somewhere else.
9.Visit your factory on occasion to meet with their people face to face.
10.Contribute to your factory’s improving its operations.
