    iPad supply chain success shows why Apple is no. 1 in AMR Top 25 Supply Chains

      The hype around iPad reached its pinnacle when Apple announced that from 12th March this year, they will start accepting pre-orders and from there their journey to fulfill the demand across US started. Nothing unusual, they planned to make things work in terms of high percentage of on-time delivery but the way responded to the market dynamics and improved their supply chain in record time is commendable. I found an interesting dissection of Apple's supply chain capabilities and how they leveraged them to deliver more than 2 million iPads in just 60 days.
