However, since Dell and Ford are two different type of industry, one is a computer manufacturing company and the other is an auto industry, it does not seem to right to implement exactly the same "virtual integration" that Dell is using now to Ford. Also, an automoblie is needed to have much more components approxminately 20, parts in order to be produced while a computer needs less than that of amount of components.
