@Hailey - In the supply chain, it's probably better to be a little 'hungry' than to become complacent.

@eldredge, teh number of suppliers who can afford to say NO is fairly small....You are in good company.

@nimantha.d - In general, that is probably true. There are some suppliers who are overbooked, and therefore can afford to say 'No'.  (Currently I'm not in that position!)

@eldridge: Yes and that is because the customers do hold the bargaining power and there are loads of competitors available. So you cannot say NO to what the customers bargain

_HM, the discussion is around whether electronics OEMs would rather have it right away (AMazon) or have it their way (Burger King). Delivery times are always going to be important but today's OEMs want more...they want products matched to their specific needs.
