Various global companies are looking for viable alternatives to increase their manufacturing efficiency and to carry out the processes in an optimized way. Though involving minimal cost and resources, organizations are demanding maximized output or optimized manufacturing.To achieve this option, organizations are trying out several alternatives like global sourcing to emerging economies, contract manufacturing etc. The implementation of any of these alternatives is an elaborate affair with a lot of complications caused by:
- Discrepancy in the decision making process
- The time taken in the decision-making process from ideation to implementation
- The time taken in the entire approval process
- Alteration of resources
For the purpose of optimized manufacturing, companies should opt for a thorough sourcing strategy analysis prior to deciding on relocation or outsourcing of the existing in house work. The decision making procedure followed by the receipt of approvals is one of the most time consuming activities. As a result, transportation of parts and resources like machines, jigs, and fixtures take place.
