WASHINGTON DC SYSTEMS COMPANY (CSC)
Seeing that CSC has decided to increase its reach by entering the personal processing industry to make a strategic decision to outsource the DVD drives because of the manufacturing costs involved, it takes to decide on the sourcing strategy and select a supplier which usually would boost its cost above the long run and result in revenue for the corporation.
On the basis of the suppliers considered, an evaluation scorecard has been created which would rate the suppliers based on the tactical and technical factors. It has been found the E-Drive could be the optimal option to go ahead with and the organization would employ single sourcing as its means or purchase. E-Drive provides the maximum score of 80. 4 in 100 inside the supplier evaluation scorecard. Likewise financially E-Drive is an extremely secure organization as compared with the other three suppliers. The whole cost per unit pertaining to E-Drive may be the second lowest at $166. 7, gets the highest inventory turnover of 9. summer, asset yield ratio of 1. 64 and extends credit rating facilities to buyers. Additionally, it operates with all the highest contribution margin 35% in the industry, provides cash reserves of $85 , 000, 000 which is noticeable from its substantial quick rate (1. 05). The total expense involved in E-Drive is $83, 347, 727 which is second lowest to Sure Technical but supplies a saving of $1. nineteen million more than Elecom and $2. 39 million above Park Technologies which would be about 3% savings for the total price.
E-Drive has become performing extremely well and is an innovative company putting into action tools such as Just-In-Time and Kanban cards to improve it is operational effectiveness. The proximity of E-Drive was in a ten mls radius from CSC which will would guarantee not only a lowering of the travel cost and faster transport but as well an opportunity pertaining to an Earlier Supplier Integration technique. E-Drive can deliver the hard drives every various days which ability could be proven by simply reports during the site go to. EDrive as being a domestic supplier eliminates the risk of associating with international trade barriers and currency changing.
The only risk involved in E-Drive was that if the team frequented the site the product quality manager got stated that there had been some issue with the earlier group size however the engineers were working on the problem and it can be resolved. Also, since we have time coming from January to August pertaining to production we could work in house with E-Drive on the quality and method checks thereby ensuring easy ramp up and production with minimum defects and help that develop in future to increase by 25% in four weeks. If we enter into a long term agreement (more than one year) with E-Drive we could consider advantages of one sourcing and on-time delivery which can be of ideal importance to the company. To mitigate the risk of supply dysfunction due to sole sourcing, we're able to build a discussing contract with E-Drive where we would maintain two weeks inventory at each of our end and in addition convince those to hold several inventory because safety share. Most of these a contingency plans can be discussed during the negotiations of the contract with E-Drive.
