Shanghai lockdown

Several media including BBC technology company Pegatron temporarily suspended production at two of its factories in China. Of course, the reason why the Chinese company stopped its operation was the lockdown in Shanghai city. As a result, production of 3 million iPhones has been affected in April 2022, according to several analysis. Also, it may last after April. The halt of factories in China will affect not only iPhone but also other Apple’s products. For instance, it may cause the decrease of 2 million iPads and 1 million MacBooks production.

Our media defines iPhone is one of the most popular products in the world. Thus, the production halt of iPhone was affecting not only Apple but also its suppliers all over the world. Its suppliers include Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and they have to react this kind of situation.

In this sense, we think that predictability, flexibility and adaptability are important.
