The lack of awareness of companies to choose quality suppliers often leads to changing suppliers. In addition, another thing that contributes to the change of suppliers is the lack of awareness of the company to manage good relationships with suppliers. The impact of changing suppliers is that there are changes in the goods or services offered to customers, such as quality, specifications, and others. Furthermore, this will affect customer satisfaction and if the quality decreases, it can result in losses for the company.

Supplier quality and supplier relationship quality play an important role in the supply chain.
