reliable supplier a business would not be able to deliver goods to their customer reliably and would loose business. A business should look for a supplier that o²ers quality products in a timely and reasonably a²ordable manner. A good relationship with a supplier can provide ±nancing opportunities that a business might not otherwise have. Also, a good relationship with a supplier can lead to business innovations. If the supplier knows a business well enough, they may recommend additional products or services to the owner that add a new or improved facet to the company's o²erings.

As important as price is to Walmart, if the items are not on the shelves the customers would not come into the store. Hence a consistent deliver schedule on a timely basis is also important for the e´cient supply chain.

Individuals want the instant grati±cation of being able to walk into a store and walk out with the PC especially since the PC's are basically similar. The customers also like to touch and feel it and are looking for price as well. Dr. Levy
