I was recently invited by the staff of China Sourcer, a quarterly newsletter style magazine published by the China Sourcing Information Center, to contribute a thought leadership article. The article appears in the March 2011 edition and has the title: Constant Reminders to Buyers on the Volatility of Balancing Supply And Demand Planning.
In this article I provide some current day reminders of product demand volatility that too often permeates many industry supply chains today, particularly those related to high tech and consumer electronics. Given these situations, I offer some recommendations to procurement buyers in their efforts to collaborate with suppliers based in China.
