Week 6 – TI Automotive

This week has been a relatively normal week, except it will be a half day shorter in recognition of the Fourth of July as we will only have a half day on Friday. I have been requesting more financial information from more suppliers as well as quality and environmental certification. The quality and environmental certification is significantly easier to obtain from suppliers than their financials, which makes sense.

On Thursday, I will be joining our purchasing team as they go to one of our suppliers, H & L Machining Parts, and tour the supplier’s plant. This will be my first time going to a plant outside of our own TI manufacturing plants and will be a very cool experience.

I have also started helping out a purchasing manager from a different TI Automotive location as her workload has increased substantially due to her boss stepping down. It is very cool to fun and rewarding to work with many different people and feel like I am helping out the company.
