5. Cisco Systems has a network of component suppliers, distributors, and contract manufacturers that are linked through Ciscos extranet. When a customer orders a Cisco product at Ciscos Web site, the order triggers contracts to manufacturers of printed circuit board assemblies when appropriate and alerts distributors and component suppliers. Ciscos contract manufacturers are aware of the order because they can log on to Ciscos extranet and link up with Ciscos own manufacturing execution systems. What are the advantages of Ciscos strategic alliances? Does this Cisco example demonstrate SCM? Why or why not?
