Instructor: Michele Nash-Hoff
Product ID: 506632
In this webinar, expert speaker Michele Nash-Hoff will provide you the answers to the above while helping you understand the hidden costs of manufacturing offshore. You will also understand how to conduct a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis and what it should include.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • What elements of indirect and direct expenses should be added in a Total Cost of Ownership Analysis
  • Hidden costs involved in outsourcing and the consequences of ignoring these costs
  • Using the Total Cost of Ownership worksheet calculator developed by the reshoring initiative
  • What has been the success in returning manufacturing to America using the TCO worksheet since it found in 2010
  • How to select the rights parts and products to return to America
  • Case studies of companies that have successfully returned manufacturing to America using a TCO analysis
Why Should you Attend
It is crucial for American companies that do not have offshore plants to be trained on how to do a true Total Cost of Ownership Analysis using the TCO Estimator as a counter to the continuing trend of offshoring manufacturing jobs by multinational corporations that have facilities all over the world.

This session will discuss the factors that are changing supply chain dynamics that make offshoring less attractive and identify industries that have reached the tipping point of returning to the U.S. Michele will also describe the Reshoring Initiative's TCO worksheet and how to conduct a TCO analysis for determining whether to reshore or not by selecting the first products/parts.

Additionally, you will be provided case studies of the companies that have successfully returned manufacturing to the U.S. using a TCO analysis. Supply chain personnel and CFOs can play key roles in educating companies about the total cost of ownership and assessing the true costs of offshoring versus reshoring.
