Templates Only ($142)

The folder of templates includes digital versions (in Excel and Word format) of the following documents:

Document Name: “Bilingual PO template.MOU template.Code of Conduct list”

Contains a Purchase Order Template + Memo of Understanding + Code of Conduct. This is the holy trinity that makes up a sound supplier-buyer contract.

Document Name: “Simple Factory Audit Template”

Contains a check list for conducting an audit of a factory’s quality systems.  This is the key step to verify that your supplier can manufacture your desired product.

Document Name: “NDA Template” is the Non-Disclosure Agreement

Contains a document that should be signed by relevant parties to ensure your intellectual property is protected.

Document Name: “Social Audit Template”

This is a check list for conducting an audit of a factory’s social compliance.

Document Name: “VERY technical Supplier Evaluation Template”

As the name stated, this is very comprehensive supplier evaluation tool. While most buyers will utilize only a fraction of the 100’s of check points, the entire document is bi-lingual and this may assist your communications if you need to convey certain quality control concepts to supplier who is not technically proficient when it comes to understanding quality terms in English.

Document Name: “Extensive Factory Audit Template”

This is a more detailed version of “simple factory audit.”

Document Name: “Random Reference Fields For a RFQ Template”

This template offers suggested fields to be used during a buyer’s Request For Quotation (RFQ) process when sourcing in common products such as injected plastic and metal fabrication.

Document Name: “Simple OPL Template”

This document is a sample of a “open project list” which can be used with a GANT chart to help organize project management.

As detailed instructions on how to use the templates are found in the book and not on the templates themselves, the author does not recommend purchase of only the template package unless buyer has significant China sourcing experience or has already purchased the book.

 

Value Pack:  e-Book + Templates ($122)

E-book (PDF version, latest edition) + digital copies (word and excel format) of the templates outlined in the book (downloadable after purchase).

 

Hardcover Book (First Edition) ($72 + $30 shipping/handling)

Amazon no longer carries a hard copy of the first and second revisions of the book. Remaining hard copies of the first edition are stored in a warehouse in NY. Second edition is not available in hard copy.  

Due to a miscommunication between the editor and printer, it has come to the author’s attention that the first edition print run of hardcover books contains minor spelling and grammatical errors. The discounted pricing above on First Edition Hardcover Book is in place until this stock is cleared from the fulfillment center. Please accept our apologies for any spelling and grammer grammor grammar issues you may encounter while reading the first edition of the guide book.
