"You are right on that but coming up with decisions could be tough at times to arrive at"

@Wale: It's tough at the beginning but if you have a system which accurately records sales and demand trends and the ability to forecast based on internal and external factors, optimizing the inventory becomes a whole lot easier.

"It's always advantageous to high-tech companies when their supply chain executives learn from other companies that have implemented new supply chain practices and are reaping the rewards from the changes they have made."

The source, peoples/companies are more interested in following successful models rather than develop new models.

Jacob, 

It's always advantageous to high-tech companies when their supply chain executives learn from other companies that have implemented new supply chain practices and are reaping the rewards from the changes they have made.  These days the supply chain is very complex, and any advantage that can be gained from implementing new technology or business practices that work is a good thing.

t.alex,

The Intel 2012-13 IT annual report did not break down spending numbers on supply chain software, but what is interesting is that the company is focusing heavily on improving its supply chain at the same time that it is shifting its focus toward serving the mobile market as the traditional PC market segment declines.

"The fear over PC markets being overtaking by smartphones is one major factor that's primarily responsible."

@Wale: That's certainly one of the main reasons why Intel should look towards cutting down on inventory. The smartphone market has made the demand volatile and Intel needs to reduce inventory and become lean so that it's able to cater to fluctuating sales.

at what cost?

As Intel invested heavily into the software, tools, and infrastructure to make things work automatically and seamlessly, I am curious how much has it spent on this and if the tools/software come from other third party vendors?

I would like to see the ARM respond to Intel's smartphone markets onslaught. And for sure, Intel supply chain is one good strategy to quickly join in the foray. I am waiting while the  smartphone's microprocessor markets drama unfolding.

What about Freescale microcontroller/microprocessor? Why's Motorola not using its semiconductor?

Wale, you are somewhat correct. They want to capture the mobile chip market from ARM
