Otherwise, the wrong kind of supply chain partnership might damage all parties involved. This section examines how Apple, a global electronic firm, integrates its global supply chain through a Chinese supplier. Comparisons of Strategies of Established Global Firms • 31 Apple keeps its core competence within and integrates the supply chain with its suppliers. In particular, Apple maintains a collaborative relationship with Foxconn, a global electronics manufacturing service (EMS) firm. In general, a global firm develops a partnership with an EMS firm for three reasons: (1) to meet mass production requirements and timely adjustments for demand fluctuations through adequate production capability; (2) to achieve total cost reduction goals in terms of factory operation costs, maintenance expenses, labor costs, and inventory costs; and (3) to achieve global production responsiveness with adjusting production hub locations according to product life cycle changes and fluctuating major market demands.

For example, after World War II Japanese firms have primarily focused on developing technology competence in view of their resource constraints in terms of labor and natural resources (Fujimoto, 2001). As their technology competence brought impressive results in North America and Europe in the 1970s to 1990s, they maintained their product strategy based on technology competence. Nevertheless, technology competence has a neutral effect on product attractiveness. Even products with outstanding technology competence may become unattractive and thus firms eventually lose their market share and experience business failures.

In particular, Shintaku’s product architecture theory that explains the catch-up model of Asian firms is applicable to supply chain configuration from one country to another. He points out that cellular phones adopt modular product architecture, which allows easy entry of competitors to the market (Shintaku, 2006). It is quite challenging to maintain competitive advantages in the cellular phone industry, which experiences intense price competition and rapid changes in product design.
