How ETHANY's eSPM Service Can Help You Ensure Quality and Compliance

February 28, 20242 min read

Establishing supplier quality and compliance programs is a critical step for any business. 

Building and managing supplier relationships allows you to: 

  • Build mutual trust, enabling you to share expertise and resources to improve quality for both parties. 

  • Gain a deeper understanding of both organizations' unique roles in the process.

  • Maintain compliance within both organizations.

Why use eSPM to ensure quality?

As with any job, you need the right tools at your disposal. 

Effectively monitoring supplier performance involves constantly reviewing their performance and quality metrics to ensure they meet your needs. This entails closely examining each stage of your supply chain to gauge how effectively it is optimizing costs, reducing inefficiencies, improving speed, and meeting or exceeding customer expectations. By doing so, you can ensure that your suppliers deliver the best possible service to your customers. 

ETHANY's Supplier Performance Monitoring (eSPM) oversees supplier performance to reduce risk while driving continuous improvement that increases operational efficiency and ensures quality and compliance.  

In addition, eSPM consolidates receipt inspection information from over 50% of North America's electric power facilities to give subscribers a complete industry picture.


Because the energy industry requires such a high degree of precision, the goods and services used in all phases of a plant's life span must be managed precisely. This includes during design, construction, commission, operation, and eventually decommission. 

The International Atomic Energy Association (IAEA) supports the "development of proactive management systems of supply chains, well-planned procurement by the owners and operators, and quality assurance/quality control systems aimed to facilitate cooperation in the nuclear industry in these areas."

Joint Supplier Corrective Action

ETHANY hosts an annual Supplier Corrective Action Forum where each member volunteers to perform Joint Supplier Corrective Action on nuclear suppliers who need additional coaching on performance-related issues. Direct contacts and follow-ups are made with the supplier's Quality Assurance Manager to discuss and obtain Corrective Action. And this process really works well.



With over 35 years of developing solutions for the Nuclear Industry, ETHANY is the trusted source for supplier performance monitoring software and support. We rely on our team of experts to stay abreast of the best quality and compliance practices in the industry so that you can depend on us with even your most critical and sensitive applications.
