designed for retail storage with customer pickup achieves quick response for high demand, low variety products. Other commodity products can be effectively distributed using distributor storage with last-mile delivery, which is also suited for high demand, quick response products. 5. What type of networks are best suited to highly differentiated products? The networks that are best suited to highly differentiated products are the manufacturer storage with direct shipping and the manufacturer storage with in-transit merge. Both approaches have the ability to aggregate inventories and postpone product customization, which would help support a wider variety of products. 6. In the future, do you see the value added by distributors decreasing, increasing, or staying about the same? It is doubtful that value added by distributors will decrease over time; the nature of competition in all areas would suggest that distributors that add less value would be winnowed out. It is more likely that distributors will be asked to do more or may volunteer to do so as a means of differentiating themselves from the competition.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
