Preparation for Last-Minute Windows 10 Migration－Procurement
Delays do not happen only due to miscommunication and human error. Some PC orders require more about 3 months to deliver. One of the reasons for this is insufficient supply of Intel CPUs, a situation which has been ongoing. Also, in some cases, distribution may suddenly stop due to natural disasters and political turmoil. In 2011, Thailand, which accounted for about 60% of the world’s hard disk production, was hit by a devastating typhoon and the production line was shut down, severely affecting the global supply of HDDs. Additionally, last year while working on a project in China, we experienced an unexpected delay in hardware delivery due to the impact of the US-China trade war. Luckily, the project timeline was not too heavily affected.
As you can see, there might be unforeseen delays in the procurement process due to many reasons beyond our control, so it is essential to make a plan with sufficient room for adjustment.
In our next article, we will discuss things such as OS editions and language-related settings.
