The PC market has changed significantly in the last few years. This includes a shift from desktops to notebooks, reduction in the importance of customized products in some market areas, globalization and the increase in the complexity and uncertainty in the market and the emergence of the retail market as a growing market for PC manufacturers.
In this Videocast, Clayton and Simchi-Levi will discuss how Dell has re-optimized its supply chain to address these challenges and drive market success, in part by segmenting its supply chain to meet the needs of Dell and its customers more precisely.
Said SCDigest's Dan Gilmore: "This is a major supply chain event, and will certainly be the biggest broadcast in the history of the Supply Chain Television Channel.
