Compaq Computer Corp’s Japanese subsidiary Compaq KK will begin a build-to-order program for personal computers beginning in October, hoping to cut inventory costs for both parts and finished products, according to Nihon Keizai Shimbun. The savings should allow the Compaq unit to slash prices by as much as 24% on three desktop PC series, totaling 23 models. The order system will initially be limited to standard models, but plans are in place to start a service by the third quarter of 1998 to make PCs according to detailed specifications from clients.
