Learn how to write complete and accurate POs, how to use the SQEP portal to review POs for accuracy, and how to track down defects. Find out exactly what NOVA requires of you. Be fully prepared and confident when you need to write an EDI 856: ASN (Advanced Ship Notice).

SQEP impacts a supplier in several areas: operations, item creation, in-bound quality, sales, accounting, and supply chain. Get on board with what SQEP requires so you can eliminate negative consequences now instead of fixing problems later.
