Manufacturing Strategy

One of the most critical questions when considering a manufacturing strategy is this: Should we make it in-house or buy it from a supplier? In an uncertain and volatile economy, the context for make-or-buy decisions has become much more dynamic. How can you achieve the right mix for your organization?

To maximize flexibility and value creation, leading manufacturers use a five-step scenario-based approach to assess a broad array of sourcing decisions simultaneously. This holistic approach enables manufacturers to develop a comprehensive set of guidelines for make-or-buy decisions company-wide.
