ǩ 01 INTRODUCTION 5ergerac Systems is a small manufacturer of rapidly growing diagnostic instruments used in veterinary practices. The company launched the OmniVue chemical analyzer , which allows veterinarians to perform a wide range of blood and blood chemistry tests of their animal patients in the office rather than sending them to outside laboratories. OmniVue is easy to operate and produces highly reliable results using a proprietary cartridge to retain the blood sample during analysis. Sales of these single use cartridges are an important part of the product line revenue stream.
Ǫ 02 PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION The firm relies on two outside suppliers for the plastic components of the cartridges. The 6"@,O is concerned about inconsistent delivery from the cartridge suppliers which have resulted in shortages and stock-outs. To address the supply chain problems, the 6"@,O considers acquiring one of the suppliers , S?GenieTech , while the director of planning proposes building the required capabilities within the company's existing manufacturing facilities. We’ll perform a quantitative and qualitative analysis of a "make vs. buy" decision while considering expected production capacities , market forecasts, and the company's overall sourcing strategy.
