  1. By carefully analyzing and making strategic changes in the personal computer value chain, and by seizing on emerging market trends, Dell Inc. grew to dominate the PC market in less time than it takes many companies to launch their first product.
  2. What was this supply chain?---But what dell did was integration of all these activities internally so that direct distribution is possible
  3. Lets have a look at the value chain analysis of DELLSo the transformation is end to end
  4. So what were the strategies that helped them to succeed?
  5. Value chain, end to end transformation---- all these are fineBut how do they know the demand– how do they function?
  6. For this functioning to happen, all the levels in the organization must be involved in decision makingstrategic level decisions overall corporate strategy direct sales method operational level analyze and predict the capacity in supply chain
  7. Dell has total command of the supply chain.Dell cuts out the retailer and supplies directly to the customers. It uses information technology, and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) approaches to capture data on its loyal consumers. So a customer selects a generic PC model, and then adds items and upgrades until the PC is kitted out to the customer's own specification. Components are made by suppliers, never by Dell. PC's are assembled using relatively cheap labour. You can even keep track of your delivery by contacting customer services, based in India. The finished goods are then dropped off with the customer by courier. Dell has total command of the supply chain.They are a knowledgeable in areas of information, communication, e-commerce, e-business, and internet and web technologies. Dell is a computer maker, not a computer manufacturer low operating cost relative Direct relationships with customers such as corporate and institutional customers.Dell turns over inventory for an average of every six days, keeping inventory costs low.
  8. .” These “cells” grouped workers together around a workstation where they assembled entire PCs according to customer specifications
  9. also provides Dell with greater opportunities since all they have to do now is to visit Dell’s website to place their order or to get information.
  10. The competitive rivalry Dell sources from Far Eastern nations where labour costs remain low, but there is nothing stopping competitors doing the same - even sourcing the same or similar components from the same or similar suppliersAlmost identical prices, price difference is no longer an issue for a customer. They might choose other brands instead of waiting for Dell’s customized computers.Technological advancement is a double-edge sword. It is an opportunity but at the same time a threat. Low-cost leadership strategy is no longer an issue to computer companies therefore it is important for Dell to stand out from the rest.
  11. Even though it is said to be that their relationship is “DEEP” with customers it’s quite visible that the service is not the greatest among all. Having a direct relationship with the customer is a good strategy but considering big customers who are going to be retailers is a big threat.But DELL is an excellent example of implementation of supply chain management.
