      • Redesign the supply chain
      • Alter strategy
  • 6. Causes of demand variations
    • Quantity of the product needed in each lot
    • Response time that customers are willing to tolerate
    • Variety of products needed
    • Service level required
    • Price of the product
    • Desired rate of innovation in the product
  • 7. Implied demand uncertainties Increases because a wider range of the quantity required implies greater variance in demand Increases because there is less time in which to react to orders Increases because demand per product becomes more disaggregate Increase because the total customer demand is now disaggregated over more channels Increases because new products tend to have more uncertain demand Increase because the firm now has to handle unusual surges in demand Range of quantity required increases Lead time decreases Variety of products required increases Number of channels for product acquisition increases Rate of innovation increases Required service level increases Implied Demand Uncertainty Customer Needs
  • 8. Supply uncertainty Increases Increases Increases Increases Increases Increases Frequent breakdowns Unpredictable and low yields Poor quality Limited supply capacity Inflexible supply capacity Evolving production process Supply Uncertainty Supply Source Capability
  • 9. Efficiency/responsiveness Dell: Custom-made PCs and servers in a few days Highly responsive Most automotive production: Delivering a large variety of products in a couple of weeks Somewhat responsive Hanes apparel: A traditional make-to-stock manufacturer with production lead time of several weeks Somewhat efficient Integrated steel mills: Production scheduled weeks or months in advance with little variety or flexibility Highly efficient
