  6. 6. Core Competency Model<br />
  7. 7. Value Chain<br />Has a state of art R&D facility and a fabricating unit in Seol. <br />Infrastructure<br />Human Resource Management<br />Strong vendor relations<br />Values human resources a lot<br />Recruitement<br />Competitive Pay scales<br /> SUPPORT ACTIVITIES<br />Excellent R&D work<br />New Products Introductions<br />Technology Development<br />Lowest Raw Material Cost in the Industry<br />High Technology based operations<br />Very strong Brand.

  9. 9. VRIO <br />
  10. 10. Samsung’s cost advantage<br /> Low labor cost at Korea.<br /> Higher capacity utilization, lower depreciation cost<br /> Raw Material, Labor, Depreciation, R&D, SG&A- these cost are substantially higher for competitors.<br />
  11. 11. Major Challenges<br /> China is a major upcoming threat<br /> Major chip producers are partnering with Chinese company i.e. Infenion, Elpida signed agreement with SMIC.<br /> Chinese are desperate in gaining market share at the cost of losses.<br /> Chinese Govt is ready to provide cheap finance to set up JV.<br />
  12. 12. Conclusion<br /> Samsung is ahead in Learning curve- emphasis more in R&D works.<br /> Play on “legacy” and “specialty” product.<br /> May collaborate with Chinese partners to expand joint investments.<br /> Probably a better option…..<br /> Produce low end product in china, high end product in Korea.<br />Ensure better control over Intellectual Property<br />
