how can lean manufacturing and near sourcing help a company gain a competitive edge and prepare for the future?
Weegy: Lean manufacturing and near-sourcing means smaller budgeting and less production costs and more profits. The nearer the sources of materials to the production site the better for the company. [ It can be competitive when other companies producing the same products get their raw materials from more distant sources. ] User: how can near-sourcing help keep down manufacturing cost? Weegy: Near-sourcing is a term used to describe a business strategically placing some of all of its operations close to where its end-products are sold. [ Typically, the term is contrasted with and used to highlight the reversal of the trend to outsource low-wage manufacturing operations to developing nations. In cases of near-sourcing, the business firm is often responding to rising costs in supply chains as well as rising costs associated with sourcing labor in developing nations. Aside from mitigating the uncertainty of rising costs associated with outsourcing to offshore locations, there are some other advantages associated with the economic trend. Those include cultural barriers, proximity, time-zone constraints and skill surplus where available. ] (More)
