Business Week June 2007 Article on Mfgr Stats May Have Distorted US Competitiveness   
[195] Last Modified: Jun 14, 2007 7:16 AM
As Business Week notes: “It was easy to downplay the huge trade deficit as long as it seemed as though domestic growth was strong. But if the import boom is actually creating only a facade of growth, that's a different story. This lends more credence to corporate leaders such as CEO John Chambers of Cisco Systems who have publicly worried about U.S. competitiveness--and who, perhaps coincidentally, have been the ones leading the charge offshore.”

Now we are finally getting the proper statistics that show the NEED to use techniques such as postponment to control the supply chain, intellectual property and customer service

Outsourcing “points of pain” in the supply chain

Outsourcing “points of pain” in the supply chain
By Del Williams
Industrial Distribution October 5, 2005

Sophisticated third party logistics providers are partnering with companies to handle global sourcing differences, improve product fill rates, and eliminate other "points of pain" in the supply chain.

CEOs and senior executives typically focus on making the sale, the product, and driving down unit cost, but seldom devote the same attention to improving the logistics side of the equation: customer fulfillment or inventory management.

Yet considering how quickly a missed delivery or incorrect shipment can sour a customer relationship and even cause the loss of customers, this is surprisingly short sighted.

Furthermore, problems caused by poor supply chain management often appear to be caused elsewhere in the company. For example, sales starts blaming production for lost revenue; production starts blaming sales for client losses—while in-house logistics and inventory management often are the true sources of the problem.

Global Logistics & Supply Chain Strategies — March, 2004
By Jon Kirkegaard

Have you heard the President’s challenge to our nation to put a man on Mars? Can you imagine the engineers designing a Mars space mission precisely calculating the physics of the perfect terminal velocity for the rocket to exit the earth’s atmosphere, but the mission fails because the rocket is inaccurately aimed at the wrong planet? That’s not unlike what many manufacturers are doing with their manufacturing strategy and execution.
