The main characteristic of the operation model of this
company is the multi-supply-chain approach and this multi-supply-chain
is so effective and efficient that it is also made available
as a business service to other companies.
To succeed, the company has strengthened its operational
systems, that is, it has built up an effective management
information system, a flexible and adaptive workforce and
flexible human resource tasking system. The strength of
these systems allows timely response to supply chain problems,
coping with fluctuations in workload, and coping with changing
product mix handling.
To gain synergism without unnecessary risk, different legal
entities are set up to take up different roles in the multi-supply-chains.
This allows that whole system to be buffered from any disturbance
arising from what happens to one of the supply chains.
This is a typical case of achieving great economy of scale
and therefore financial benefits through internal system
efficiency and effectiveness.
