Abstract: In the current competitive manufacturing business environments, the key suppliers along a supply chain have become the potential modes for the manufacturers to generate the sustainable competitive advantages. Consequently, the suppliers capabilities and the manufacturer-supplier relationships are actively pursued and developed by the manufacturers in transforming their supply chains. As the suppliers have earned strategic roles to play in the value addition process, most of the manufacturers are inclined to have dependable suppliers and even propose certain supplier development initiatives so as to strengthen their supply bases. The Supplier Development Programs (SDPs) in this regard have been effective in nurturing the suppliers contributions along the supply chains and establish strategic relationships with the suppliers. Although SDPs have the potential to efficaciously influence the manufacturer-supplier business conducts, there are no effective systems available to organize the implementation of SDPs and to sustain the results from the SDPs. Due to this, most of the manufacturers are becoming skeptical about the investments made in the SDPs and as a result the essential supply chain development that has to occur is greatly hampered. Thus, the current piece of research is focused on developing the systematic methodologies for a manufacturer s assistance in conducting the SDPs. Specifically, the manufacturers are provided with the approaches to efficaciously conduct the SDPs, address the impediments to SDPs and analyze the performances of SDPs. The methods to derive the right strategies for practicing the preferred supplier and preferred customer concepts are proposed and tested in the practical case situations of Indian manufacturing environment. Finally, the generic structural frameworks for achieving furtherance in the SDPs, for subduing the impediments to SDPs and for cultivating a manufacturer s preferred supplier and preferred customer relationships are developed in the interest of Indian manufacturing
