Ixion's Supply Chain Management Framework

The Supply Chain Management Framework has been developed using Merlin Principles to support Ixion to procure and maintain excellent and positive relationships with subcontractors in a creative and innovative way ensuring maximum flexibility. In as much as the Merlin Standard has been designed to recognise and promote sustainable excellence and partnership working within supply chains and provide guidance to those seeking to achieve it, Ixion has implemented its Supply Chain Management Framework to ensure it aligns to the four integrated and fundamental Merlin principles; Supply Chain Design, Commitment, Conduct and Review.
