You need to initiate repair/replacement product and delivery.
All open issues with the customers or suppliers need to be clarified.
If agreed upon initiate additional consignment.
You need to organize the second part of the project by going through the parts with your colleagues.
Why can it happen that, in a warranty claim or defect caused by the supplier, the supplier cannot be called?
Because there are two different and separate contracts. So it may not be possible to hand over the claims of the customer to the supplier due to the individual contract.
Because the documentation of the defects and shortcomings of the supplier are not correct or the timeline to inform the supplier was not met.
Because maybe one can prove that it was the suppliers fault that caused the shortcomings/ defect.
Because one does not want the customer to get to know the supplier.
