Turning the tide: Outsourcing, quality control and consumers
from By Alan Kelsky
Manufacturing companies are always looking for ways to cut costs and increase profits. One method often used is to outsource manufacturing and product assembly to countries with low labor costs. Outsourcing does lower production costs, but in many instances it lowers quality and diminishes the customer base. While cost per unit is lower, often so are sales. Companies lose quality through outsourcing because they lose control. Consumers are aware of these mistakes, and perhaps they have had enough.
