iPhone teardown-380x285Apple has long been one of Samsung’s largest customers, and Samsung one of Apple’s biggest component suppliers.

But with tensions between the two companies running high, thanks to a sprawling global patent battle, and with Apple working to diversify its supply chain, the pair’s previously symbiotic relationship is beginning to change.

Apple SupplyChainApple’s famed supply-chain could face a stern test this holiday season.

Having already seen the enthusiasm with which the iPhone 4S was welcomed last holiday season, many expect the same euphoria following the launch of the iPhone 5 this year to be the biggest device upgrade cycle in Apple’s history.

While the demand for this device is, in all likelihood, set to touch all-time highs, Apple’s main worry will be matching the high demand with supply. In this regard, concerns that Apple may have a tough time meeting iPhone 5 demand are being raised, with a couple of reports claiming that one of Apple’s key partners, Sharp Corp, has fallen behind on its production of screens for the iPhone 5 due to high costs and ‘manufacturing difficulties’.

Supply chain management has always been important.

However, its relative importance is on the rise, particularly as senior executives are becoming more focused on supporting a return to growth.

Trends and realities in the global economy are thrusting supply chain management to the forefront of business strategy. Executives are realizing that supply chain characteristics and capabilities ultimately define how a business can and should operate. As this new state of affairs takes hold, supply chain managers must both embrace and act upon an evolved and elevated role in strategy formation, leadership and value creation.

artist-render-of-iphone-5-whiteThere might be a shortage of iPhone5s when they hit the market.

Juro Osawa at the Wall Street Journal reports Sharp "hasn't started mass producing screens" for the next iPhone. It was supposed to have been shipping screens to Apple by the end of August.

Sharp isn't Apple's only supplier. It is also getting screens from Japan Display and LG Display, Osawa reports. Apple should still be able to manufacture the new iPhone, it's just a matter of whether or not it will be able to make enough if one of its suppliers is behind schedule.

ManufTodd Taylor from OPS Rules Management Consultants explains how to optimize your forecasting.

"The funny thing about forecasts is.…they are never accurate,” explained a very experienced operations executive during a recent meeting. A veteran in our industry with 30+ years in supply chain and manufacturing operations; this executive works at a very senior level in an operations leadership position for one of the leading technology companies in the world.  This man claims that that he has “blunted his sword” trying to improve forecasts, but in the end….”forecasts are always wrong”. 

We all know that forecasts are never accurate. We also understand the “bullwhip effect” and what happens in traditional value chains the further a company is from the end consumer.
