Category Management

Category management at OneSubsea aims to increase the overall supply chain value by using global leverage in cost, lead-time and quality. The main purpose of this group is to standardize processes and procedures which drives continuous improvement activities across business units and suppliers.

The category managers are aligned to global multi-site vendors to steer strategic growth, coordinate improvements and standardization across multi-sites through improving demand management, supplier controls, and sharing knowledge across OneSubsea and the wider supply chain.

Our supply chain management experts work along with the plant procurement and key stakeholders to reduce risk in the supply chain and collaborate on innovative projects to increase the overall value from the supply base.
