ASQ Merrimack Valley October Section Meeting - Right-Shoring

 Right-Shoring

Presented By Jim Curley

Moving manufacturing of goods to a Low Cost Region may be a margin panacea for some companies, but for many companies the hidden costs in dollars, time, quality, and employee satisfaction may have an impact that is too tall an order. Jim will explore and discuss his experience with manufacturing in China and Taiwan, and how he made the case to ‘Right-Shore’ and bring product manufacturing back to the States on a cost neutral basis.
