Conducted in collaboration with IDC Manufacturing Insights, our 2013 Change in the (Supply) Chain results are based on survey responses from high-tech supply chain decision-makers across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. Two in-depth focus groups with U.S. high-tech executives provided further insight.
Results from the survey, now in its fourth year, reveal how high-tech companies around the world are preparing to align their global supply chains to become more customer-centric, and deploying new supply chain strategies to improve customer service. Executives report that bringing production closer to demand will be one way to improve customer experience while increasing control over quality and intellectual property.
