Event Description

Learn How You Can Make Better Sourcing Decisions by Using TCO and CDF

There is a rising trend of companies reevaluating their offshoring decisions and considering localization (reshoring or nearshoring). Since January 2010, reshoring and Foreign Direct Investment have brought about 260,000 manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. The main drivers behind this trend are the rapidly rising Chinese wages and the realization by companies that producing in or near the market has balance sheet, risk and strategic benefits that often outweigh higher wage rates and manufacturing costs.

This session with industry expert Harry Moser will help you learn the latest tools for making better sourcing decisions. Two of the essential tools are the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Estimator, which has 1,500 users and the Cost Differential Frontier (CDF), which quantifies lead time's impact on obsolescence and stock-outs.

You'll also get free access of the TCO estimator and CDF tool.

Session Highlights

  • Learn how to decide which products or components to reevaluate for offshoring or reshoring.

  • Effective use of TCO and CDF
  • How to find what other companies are doing in reshoring
  • Get free access of TCO Estimator and CDF tool
