Additionally, the company has a strong reputation in product development. Conclusion of the supplier information Considering the products PSC needs should be high quality and the supplier's production and lead-time should be high flexible to support PSC's make-to-order strategy. Avoiding possible risks are the critical issue. Multiple sourcing might minimize the purchasing risk, assurance of the source of supply and also enhanced buyer's negotiation leverage to get a better cost. According to our analysis of these case, Sure Tech and E-Drive are in better overall position.
The switch is easy and cost-efficient. c. the ratio of fixed to variable costs is high: Inventec has to reduce prices to utilize installed capacity. (e.g. its new manufacturing compound in Pudong, Shanghai) d. OEMs own the distribution channel and make the rules. 2.

Operationalizing integration as functional alignment with generated plans, we find collaborative engagement of the functions to be a consistent process feature and operational norm encouraged and maintained by integrators. In particular, the information processing nature of the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process introduced at Leitax is argued effective as a result of this collaborative engagement. We argue that this collaborative engagement positively influences alignment even in the absence of an overall reduction in the level of differentiation exhibited by an organization, which stands in contrast to academic structural recommendations for changes in incentives for achieving integration. Examining a systemic tradeoff consciously acknowledged by the organization, we further argue that alignment encouraged by this collaborative engagement can be more important than achieving, superior performance along such dimensions as speed or accuracy in individual information processing steps of the S&OP process, a tradeoff which to our knowledge has not been highlighted in the supply chain management literature. Leitax (A) case questions • Describe the demand planning process before the Redesign Project was initiated in April
