Manufacturing in Asia (China, India, Indonesia, etc.) is no longer a slam dunk for U.S. companies. There are many factors to consider when deciding where to manufacture and the analysis required is not that easy. You need to look at everything from taxes, regulations and currencies to culture, fair labor practices and quality/safety standards to supplier networks, skilled labor, infrastructure and everything in between.

At a recent planning call with some of the members of the Next Practices Xchange for their upcoming conference, I was asked to come up with the list of concerns that leaders in the community (Procurement, Strategic Sourcing, Supply Chain, etc. etc.) had. This was to identify the major risks that are facing the community so that a relevant agenda could be developed. I pushed back at the members and got them to acknowledge that we would be talking about only those issues that they knew about or had identified. What about all those that they had not?
