Category Management

The aim of Saab Group is to leverage the Group’s consolidated purchasing power, create significant cost reductions and minimize the supplier base through Category Management. Saab has divided its purchased products and services into categories which are fundamental for a correct spend tool and enables an effective category management approach.

The categories cover both direct and indirect material. Each category has a Category Team managed by a Category Account Manager (CAM) and have team members, representing both sourcing and product development, from all business areas.

Category Management focus on the Saab Group buying pattern to enforce the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and  provides common way of handling spend and managing suppliers.

Furthermore it encourages and drives harmonization and standardization of products and services.
