    • 5.
      • Material costs account for 74%($21 billion) a year for dell.
      • Improving SCM by 0.1% has bigger impact than improving manufacturing process by 10% .
      • Changing technology obsoletes Materials’ value by almost 1% per week .
      • Rely on market forecasting to drive Production.
      • Technological breakthroughs cause very short Product life cycles .
      Why SCM is so Important in PC business
    • 6.
      • Need to hold inventory at each step in value chain .
      • Have to pay suppliers first before getting paid from customers .
      • Caught with short supplies of hot products- lost sales.
      • Stuck with excess inventories of slow selling products .
      • With about 2,000 product transitions a year, the ability to reduce product time to market is critical.
      Competitors’ Disadvantages vis-à-vis Dell
    • 7. Dell’s Competitive Advantages
      • Dell is having one of the best SCM in the world.
      • 90% supplies ordered online using integrated websites of supplier and Dell (B2B).
      • 95% of suppliers situated very close to assembly plant hence coordination is easier.
      • Dell’s factories have only 7 hrs worth of inventory for most items whereas industry wise it is around 10 days.
      • 15 suppliers provide almost 85% of all supplies.
      • Dell gets paid by customers and then pays to its suppliers.
    • 8.
      • Dell chose i2 Technologies for its SCM system.
      • i2 serves almost 70% of the SCM market.
      • Every 20 sec the S/W aggregates orders, analyzes material requirements ,compares Dell’s on-hand inventory with its suppliers’ inventory and then creates a supplier bill of material to meet its order needs .
      • Instead of forecasting the daily supply needed, Dell receives the exact material every two hours to fulfill actual customer orders.
      Dell Chooses i2 SCM S/W package
    • 9. Dell ERP Debacle
    • 10. Dell’s Ans to ERP G2 Architecture The G-2 architecture enables company to run “best-of- breed applications” rather than only a single enterprise system.

      • At every stage of the assembly, the tags are read by the antenna for specific instructions.
    • 15. RFID at Dell - Shipping
      • Once assembled and tested, production information is inserted into the tags and sent to a shipping station.
      • At the shipping station, the RFID tag transfers data to the control PC.
