Example text

This definition leads to several observations. First, supply chain management takes into consideration every facility that has an im pact on cost and plays a role in making the product conform to custom er requirements: from supplier and m anu­ facturing facilities through warehouses and distribution centers to retailers and stores. Indeed, in some supply chain analysis, it is necessary to account for the suppliers’ suppliers and the custom ers’ customers because they have an impact on supply chain performance.

How frequently should data be transferred and analyzed? What is the impact of the Internet? W hat is the role of electronic commerce? What infrastructure is required both internally and between supply chain partners? Finally, since information technology and decision-support systems are both available, can these technologies be viewed as the main tools used to achieve competitive advantage in the market? If they can, then what is preventing others from using the same technology? Customer Value Customer value is the measure of a company’s contribution to its customer, based on the entire range of products, services, and intangibles that con­ stitute the company’s offerings.

Surgeons and doctors often held onto preferred manufacturers. Hospitals frequently used group purchasing organizations (GPOs) that took advantage of extended contracts with suppliers. The process of “converting” a hospital to a new supplier often took months of negotiation and convincing. Most endoscopic surgical instruments are small enough to fit into the palm of a surgeon’s hand. They are mechanical in nature, typically having several intricate mechanisms to provide the required functionality.
