Toyota Motor will have in place by autumn a more resilient supply chain that would recover within two weeks of another massive earthquake hitting Japan, a top executive said on Friday.

Nissan

SUPPLIERS, workers, politicians and union leaders were last night united in hailing Nissan's announcement of 2,000 new jobs as a major coup for the North-East.

The Japanese car maker is creating 400 jobs its Sunderland factory and 1,600 more across the supply chain after deciding to build its new family hatchback in this region.

The move offered a major boost to companies which depend on the car giant to fill their order books.

Among those set to benefit from Nissan's vote of confidence in the North-East were plastic injection moulding company Nifco UK, which recently moved into an £8.5m factory in Eaglescliffe; Formula Plastics of Newton Aycliffe, as well as warehousing specialist Vantec and engineering firm Unipres, both based on Wearside.

iPad3

 

NEW YORK (Trefis) -- Over the past few years, Apple(AAPL_) has encountered numerous raw material supply-related issues but has been able to overcome them.

Apple faced challenges last year such as the devastating earthquake in Japan labor and material supply issues in China, but it handled the problems deftly while other tech players such as Intel(INTC_), HP(HPQ_) and Dell(DELL_) suffered.

This time, according to a recent report from DigiTimes, there could be iPad 3 supply problems due to an insufficient supply of high resolution display screens, which are an integral of iPad 3. We discussed that issue in an earlier article.

Qualcomm

San Diego-based Qualcomm supplies SoCs for many Android makers, with its dual-core Snapdragon S4 (Krait) chip powering several high-profile Android devices that are coming over the next months. But Qualcomm is a fabless firm, meaning that it doesn’t actually manufacture the chips it designs and markets. Fabrication is handled by Asian semiconductor specialists, most notably Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).

Now, Qualcomm seems to be running into serious issues with its S4 chip. According to a rumor reported by Semi Accurate, TSMC has encountered major problems with its 28nm chip line, causing it to halt production. The issues appeared to have occurred earlier this year, TSMC stopping production on February 15 without resuming it since.

iPAD 3

NEW YORK (AP) — Apple certainly has lots of buzz and corporate cache behind its products, but there's a hidden — almost mundane — reason its newest iPad is likely to dominate the competition: the advantageous deals the company cuts with components manufacturers.

Apple's size, and the fact that the iPad shares components with the highly popular iPhone, means that the company can buy crucial parts such as processing chips and display screens at lower prices. Any company that wants to make a tablet computer that matches the iPad's $499 starting price has to endure higher costs.

As a result, Apple's tablet-making competitors have flailed — and failed. And with the new iPad, Apple is expected to extend its 62 percent market share in the tablet computer category it created. IMS Research expects Apple to capture 70 percent of the market this year.

A year ago, scores of companies all thought they had a shot at emulating Apple's success. More than 100 tablet models were on display at the annual consumer electronics trade show in Las Vegas in January 2011. Many of them ran on the Android operating system, developed by Silicon Valley powerhouse Google.

As the year progressed, those dreams crumbled. The iPad 3, launched in March, proved nearly unassailable.

A big part of the reason was that Apple has priced the iPad aggressively. At just under $500 for the basic model, Apple's profit margin on the device is lower than on the iPhone, a smaller device for which it charges phone companies a wholesale rate of $600 or more.

intel-logo

Intel's manufacturing whiz and new chief operating officer, Brian Krzanich, says he has fine-tuned his supply chain to meet expected demand for chips for smartphones and tablets.

Krzanich, whose January promotion marks him as a forerunner to one day become chief executive, said his focus has been shortening turnaround times in the top chipmaker's cutting-edge factories -- improvements he said have become key in the fragmented mobile market.

Starbuck

In recent years, we've seen the explosion of supply chain management programs and eco-labels assuring buyers that products are sustainably produced. The Ecolabel Index currently tracks 424 different types of ecolabels in 246 countries and 25 industry sectors -- 145 related to food alone.

While many companies have also started developing their own supplier certification programs tailored to their specific needs and operating environment, few programs (even ecolabels) have devoted resources to ongoing monitoring of the programs.

With so much financial investment in these programs, many have begun to ask: Have the programs been effective? Are they driving sustainable production in the sector and providing some of the social benefits they promised? Recently, Conservation International (CI) collaborated with our longtime partner, Starbucks Coffee Company, to begin answering these questions for its home-grown supply chain program, Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) Practices, and we have a few takeaways to share on the value of these assessments as well as how to build ongoing results assessment into your own program.

UPS

It’s been more than a year since UPS stopped asking and started telling.

No longer does the Sandy Springs company prompt customers to consider what brown can do for them. Instead, in its ads, UPS professes its love for the business that pulls its myriad pieces together: logistics.

The $6.77 billion purchase of Dutch package delivery company TNT last week — UPS’ largest-ever acquisition, by fivefold — is another piece of the puzzle that helps the company handle the cross-continental movement of goods, from packages to pallets. But it’s also a steppingstone toward UPS’ goal of providing customers a comprehensive range of solutions that go beyond simply delivering items. The newest tag line — “We [heart] logistics” — and catchy jingle just push the logistics piece to the forefront.

Apple Foxconn

This report is the result of a Fair Labor Association (FLA) independent investigation into Apple’s supplier Foxconn, China’s largest private employer. FLA is a unique collaboration among companies, universities, and labor and human rights civil society organizations that goes beyond identifying labor problems by uncovering the sources of these problems, and how best to resolve them. Working directly with corporations allows for more success in developing meaningful solutions that remain after public scrutiny and media attention have faded. After growing criticism during 2011 about the working conditions at Foxconn, including those conditions that led to deadly accidents, Apple agreed to allow FLA to conduct a thorough investigation of those suppliers, beginning with three factories at Guanlan, Longhua, and Chengdu in China. Much more than an audit for compliance, this investigation is best described as an in-depth, top-down and bottom-up examination of the entire operation.
