Prior to beginning work on this assignment,

  • Review Chapters 3 and 4 of the course textbook, Operations and Supply Chain Management.

In retail, point of sale capability is directly tied to factories and supplier cooperation. For example, Walmart’s trucking and GPS, cross-dock warehouse load and unload operations, and RFID enable their supply chain to be fast and on-time (i.e., reliable). Outsourcing and supplier discounts for large volume orders give Walmart much power in the global supply chains. Competitors, such as Target, Safeway, and Costco, have copied many of their methods and practices, so Walmart’s competitive advantage has diminished.

Using Walmart’s case as an example, select another company and review its competitive advantage. How does the company use the competitive priority cost to its competitive advantage? Research, then explain and provide examples.

In your paper,

  • Research how your selected company uses the competitive priority cost to its competitive advantage.
