11. Consider Figure 1-5. What are the reasons for the increase in transportation costs? Inventory costs? Does one affect the other? How? Meditech Surgical Three years after M editech was spun off from its parent company, Meditech captured a majority of the endoscopic surgical instrument market. Its primary competitor, National Medical Corporation, had prac­ tically invented the $800 million market just over a decade ago. But Meditech competed aggressively, developing new, innovative instruments and selling them through a first-class sales force.

The first channel, for domestic sales only, uses domestic distributors, or dealers, to ship to hospitals. The dealers order and receive products from multiple manufacturers, including Meditech, typically stocking hundreds of different products. Stocked products range from commodity items, such as surgical gloves and aspirin, to endoscopic surgical instruments. By using dealers to supply products, hospitals do not need to order directly from manufacturers for their diverse needs. Additionally, since dealers maintain regional warehouses all over the United States, the distance between dealer warehouses and most hospitals tends to be quite small.

O f course, many of these approaches rely heavily on technology. Indeed, the imple­ mentation of ERP systems, motivated in many companies by year 2000 concerns, as well as new technology such as tools for supplier performance assessments, have created opportunities to improve supply chain resiliency and responsiveness. Similarly, advanced inventory planning systems are now used to better position inventory in the supply chain, and to help firms better understand the impact of product design alter­ natives on supply chain costs and risks, thus facilitating the integration of the development chain and the supply chain.
