Discussion Board: Location Analysis and Logistical Integration
This week we examine and build an entire supply chain network. One critical issue is location decisions. Many manufacturing facilities are located near resources (supply) or consumers (demand). Pick any manufacturer that has information available about the company online. Where are they manufacturing their product? Why did they choose that location? Make sure to list and analyze all the major factors in their decision. Address the company’s logistical systems? In your opinion is it successful? Why or why not?
