Compaq Computer Corp is now building all of the desktop, server and portable systems made at its manufacturing plant in Scotland to order, rather than using forecasts as it did previously. The company says that since it began the process of building to order, it’s reduced the average channel inventory in Europe, Africa and the Middle East from over six weeks down to four weeks. It hopes to have that down to two weeks in the first and second quarters of next year. It says the eventual result will be lower prices for consumers.
