Is Rightshoring Right for my Supply Chain?

With vast global supply chains, firms need to consider more than labor, material and shipping costs when making strategic decisions on facility location and supplier selection. Discussions on Rightshoring will be enhanced during this workshop through the hands-on application of a new Risk-adjusted Total Cost of Ownership Calculator.

In a post-COVID world, Rightshoring variables of costs and risks are changing faster than ever, so supply chain analytical tools must keep pace too. A toolkit was recently developed based on 12 supply chain costs and 31 strategic and operational risks. This workshop will first provide you with a “quick look” questionnaire on Rightshoring for your company. Then, you will employ the new Risk-adjusted Total Cost of Ownership Calculator to compare your various shoring options. You will perform a hands-on analysis of your corporate situation (confidentially of course) or you can experiment with one of 3 demo scenarios, so bring a laptop with Excel-compatible software ready to go. Discussions as we experiment together are sure to be informative and exciting!
