Referring to the below case study,Expalin about the Lean supply chain management followed by Dell in your own words(Case study Reference:Supply chain Management Text and cases:V.V Sople) Dell's Lean Supply Chain In the computer industry, Dell carries fewer inventories than its competitors. Dell keeps inventory of less than 10 days' work as compared to 80-100 days by competition. As Dell has an alliance with Intel, any new chip introduced by Intel allows Dell to go to market with a PC faster than the competition. Dell maintains very less inventory. The transportation company simply picks up the appropriate number of computers for Dell's Austin plant and monitors from Sony's factory in Mexico, Matches them by cusomter order and delivers them to the customers. This strategy allows Dell to save time and money associated with the extra handling of monitors and ensures that defects are not introduced into large quantity of production. If there is a problem at the customer end, production is stopped and flaws are fixed in real-time resulting into minimum defective finished products
Referring to the below case explain the Logistics strategy adopted by Ambuja Cements (Case study Reference:Supply chain Management Text and cases:V.V Sople) Ambuja Cements is the largest manufacturers of cement in India with 30 metric tonne production capacity. The majority of their production facilities are located in the coastal area of Gujarat. In cement marketing, the logistics cost is a major cost spinner. The logistics cost as a percentage of product cost varies from 14-22 per cent. Ambuja due to its plant locations, takes advantage of sea transportation to move its products to the major markets like Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Chennai, etc. The sea transportation forms the major part of its transportation mode. Large quantities of its cement production are dispatched through the sea route. As sea transportation is cheaper than both road al rail transportation, Ambuja is spending less on transportation cost. This is the reason, why logistics cost for Ambuja is 14-15 per cent as against their rival, who are managing with 17-22 percent as their plants are located in land-locked areas wherein they have no option but to use road or rail transport
