As early asin order to improve their cost position and speed up time to market, the printer divisions in Boise had implemented two new product development metrics. If the team were to implement the change, they would have to convince management that the benefits outweighed the costs.

I hope I do not have to do it! Tell us what you need to have done now! The main components of the VIPER were sourced from Japan and resulted in the same four and a half month lead time to the factories.

The reason for this is that if a customer buys a competitive brand due to our inability to keep the resellers on stock, there is a chance that he will stay with that brand when he purchases a printer in the future.

We estimate that the entire life cycle of the product is at most 18 months. Rainbow, the network printer under development, is a product with much more configurable options and features for the printer, such as memory, stapling ability, firmware, system software, fax modems, paper handling, linkage to print server, scanner, and printer stand.

For North American printers, a volt power supply was installed.

In consumer product lines, low prices, broad availability and ease of use had become competitive requirements. It is easy to see why we love the universal power supply.

We may think that Europe will need ten thousand units and North America two thousand when the numbers may turn out to be fifteen and fifteen thousands respectively.

The other major cost that I have to monitor is inventory. First, they had instituted cost reduction goals for each new generation of printer.

You see, while transshipment has always been possible in theory, we have avoided it whenever possible. What hurts us is our inability to accurately forecast the mix of demands in geographical regions. In addition, the localization of the product through the inclusion of driver software disks, manuals, power cords and front panels with the correct mix of languages are also done at the DCs.

The product requires dedicated power supply and fuser, V or V, which cannot be interchangeable. Monopoly control of one of the key components allowed this partner to require a week lead time from HP. The network printer is a high-end laser printer that has networking capabilities and special functionalities.

Finally, the long lead time from Japan causes my marketing staff to pull their hair out.Hewlett-Packard Company: Network Printer Design For Universality Presented by: Waqas Iqbal & Cao ZhiChao The Hewlett-Packard Company • HP.
