A recent Thomas survey shows a significant increase in reshoring - 83% of manufacturers indicated that they are likely or extremely likely to reshore production. Doing so makes the U.S. more self-sufficient. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Manufacturing Critical path Time (MCT) are the most powerful tools companies can use when considering domestic versus offshore sourcing and production and are the leading factors increasing the recognition of U.S. competitiveness.

Join us in conversation with Cathy Ma, vice president of Platform Growth and Engagement at Thomas, Harry Moser, founder and president, Reshoring Initiative®,and Ryan Kelly, general manager, AMT San Francisco Tech Lab, to dig into recent survey data and to understand these tools and better appreciate when to use them.

Takeaways include:

  1. Insights into Thomas' extensive survey results re company sourcing strategies
  2. Explanation of the use of TCO and MCT for sourcing decisions
  3. How supply chain companies can use TCO and MCT as sales tools to convince OEMs to reshore
