Make-versus-buy; acquiring additional production capacity and flexibility are critical decisions in manufacturing networks, especially when they go beyond cost savings. Even though cost continues to be a primary objective in any production strategy, other goals such as flexibility, time to market, and geography are making a significant impact on such decisions because a production location that once provided significant cost advantages may now be subject to geopolitical risks, economic challenges, or rising labor rates.
