    HP's approach to outsourcing manufacturing at ESC2010

    clairehawdon Newbie



      Extended Supply Chain 2010 is delighted to announce further details of the ‘Outsourcing manufacturing’ session to be delivered by Christian Verstraete, Chief Technologist of Manufacturing and Distribution at Hewlett-Packard.


      For many organisations, outsourcing manufacturing seems the right thing to do to reduce cost and focus on core competencies. Unfortunately many companies often forget the “collateral damage” of outsourcing a critical component of the Supply Chain, when buying power may be reduced, visibility lost and agility restricted. Christian will explain how HP, by outsourcing more than 90% of its production, went through those pain points and was forced to put processes, tools and techniques in place to maintain its competitive advantage. Christian will provide insight into the processes that ultimately helped HP to streamline their supply chain and build a more robust one whilst maintaining profitability.
