    intel one of the most world's largest manufactures of computer chip.
    however, the company the company needed to make slot of supply chain cost reduction after beginning its low-cost "Atom"chip to market. supply chain cost of around $ 5.50 per chip were bearable for units selling for $100 but the price of the new chip was the fraction of that. at about $20.
    somehow intel has to reduce the supply chain cost for the atom chip but had only one area of leverage inventory.
    the chip had to work, so there was no service trade-offs that could be made. being a single component,there was also no way to pay less in the way of duties. Intel had already whittled packaging down to a minimum and with a high value-to-weight ratio, the chips distribution could not really be pared down any further.

    what do you the path to cost reduction??
