The product is selling at Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon, and it's slated to comeout on Sony's PlayStation console. That's the end of the story, right? Not quite. In additionto focusing on the firms downstream that sell your product, you will also look upstream atyour suppliers and sideways at potential firms in which to partner. Your product's supply chain includes not only the downstream companies that actively sellthe product, but also all the other organizations that have an impact on it before, during,and after it's produced. Those companies include the providers of the raw materials yourfirm uses to produce it, the transportation company that physically moves it, and the firmthat helped build the web pages to promote it.Learning Resource6/29/22, 1:30 PM Channel Strategies for Delivering Valuehttps://learn.umgc.edu/d2l/le/content/683174/viewContent/26206636/View 2/22If you hired a programmer overseas to help write computer code for the game, theprogrammer is part of the product's supply chain. If you hired a company to processcopies of the game returned by customers, that company is part of the supply chain aswell. Large organizations with many products can have thousands of supply chainpartners. Service organizations also need supplies to operate, so they have supply chains,too.The process of designing, monitoring, and altering supply chains to make them as efficientas possible is called supply chain management. The term was coined by an Americanindustry consultant in the early 1980s, but it's an old idea. Part of Henry Ford's strategy inthe early 1900s was to extract as much efficiency (and money) as he could by takingownership of the supply chains for his automobiles. Ford owned the foundries thatconverted raw iron ore to steel for his cars. He also owned the plantations that grew therubber for his automobiles' tires, and the ships on which the materials and finishedproducts were transported (Bowersox & Closs, 2000).Today, many companies still take a narrow view of their supply chains; they look at supplychains mainly in terms of the costs they can save. Cost reduction is an important part ofsupply chain management. After all, if your competitors can produce their products at alower cost, they could put you out of business.Keep in mind, however, that a firm can produce a product so cheaply that no one will buyit because it's shoddy. That's why smart companies view their supply chains as an integralpart of their marketing plans. In other words, these companies also look at the ways theirsupply chains can create value for customers to give their firms a competitive edge.Today, the term value chain is sometimes used interchangeably with the term supplychain. The idea behind the value chain is that your supply chain partners should do morefor you than perform just basic functions; each one should help you create more value forcustomers as the product travels along the chain—preferably more value than yourcompetitors' supply chain partners can add to their products.Sourcing and ProcurementSourcing is the process of evaluating and hiring individual businesses to supply goods andservices to your business. Procurement is the process of purchasing those goods andservices. Sourcing and procurement have become a bigger part of a supply manager's job,in part because businesses keep becoming more specialized. Just like Ford's workersbecame more efficient by performing specialized tasks, so, too, have companies.6/29/22, 1:30 PM Channel Strategies for Delivering Valuehttps://learn.umgc.edu/d2l/le/content/683174/viewContent/26206636/View 3/22Ford Motor Company no longer produces its own tires.

Answer 1:
This is my personal experience where the capital project which was undertaken by me was the investment, I made in one of the start-ups in 2020, the company was a great investment because of the way the product was positioned which was targeted to provide digital services to agencies. The firm was hiring offshore talent to
provide the services which were both efficient and effective and this is the reason I invested in the project.
The initial investment I made was $10,000 for a 5% equity, this was invested at a very early stage which made me get a big chunk of equity. The valuation of the company at the time of my investment was $200,000 (Miloud, Aspelund & Ca
ol 2012). Cu
ently, the company is valued at $1,000,000 giving my 5% equity a value of $50,000 (on paper). The dollar profits are on paper because I have not sold the equity and am not planning to sell it in the near future.
The capital project analysis which helped me get on with this investment was the excellent product viability, and the cash flow projections that the company presented showed that they are profitable from day 1. The other factor was that the valuation of $200,000 for a company already generating $10,000 as profits was excellent because it is cheap to get a firm at a 20x value to profit ratio. The other factor which made me believe that this investment and analysis will be a success was the industry which they got into, digital is the way we are going to live in the future and therefore they had a product and a growing industry.

Answer 2:
Topic 1:
Supply chain partners are integral to creating value for the overall business (Sufiyan 2019). The criteria which are most important while evaluating the performance of supply chain partners are:
· Lead Time: Lead time is the time taken by the partner to deliver the product once it is ordered (Ramdas 2000). The lower the lead time is the better the performance of the supply chain partner is and therefore lead time is one of the critical criteria
· Warehousing and Transportation: Storing products is an important factor to supply the products. Identifying the right number of warehouses needed to reduce the lead time and deliver products efficiently is what makes the supply chain partner a good one
· Cost Control: Last but not least is the efficiency with which the supply chain partner is controlling the cost. This gives them an edge over everything and therefore this is one of the main and most important criteria of evaluation (Bhagwat & Sharma 2007).
Evaluating performance requires a thorough understanding of the process and the work, the above-mentioned criteria are just some of but most vital ones, but there are many which cannot be ignored as well and need to be added at the time of evaluation.
