I'm reading a book on strategy right now, and this article about Dell fits right in. Dell's competitive advantage used to be manufacturing. Over the past 7 years or so, it has let its manufacturing edge slip--along with things such as service, support and product development. At any rate, it has evidently thrown in the towel on manufacturing announcing the closure of many manufacturing plants. Here is another example of where manufacturing managers either didn't maintain corporate clout or a vision of efficient operations. It is incumbent upon all of us to constantly find ways to make manufacturing an important part of our companies' strategic advantage. If we fail, a lot of bad things happen.
