Event description
Interactive Lean webinar highlighting the practical opportunities and challenges of relocating manufacturing back to Australia.

About this event

The last few months have created a new focus across Australia Supply Chains, especially the reliance on imported goods and extended supply chains. For many products the case for making it here; is being re-assessed. This is a trend that has been underway for at least five years on North America and Europe, but COVID 19 is finally prompting a re-evaluation of Australia’s over-reliance on international supply chains.

This interactive webinar will discuss and review the following:

  • What are the considerations about where to source?
  • What are the hidden costs (total) of extended Supply Chains?
  • What has changed that necessitates a re-evaluation of past sourcing decisions
  • What are the six steps required to successfully bring production home?

Learning Outcomes

  • Guidelines to help decide which inputs to source locally and which to import.
  • The six steps that businesses need to take to successfully re-establish local production
  • How local suppliers can position themselves to benefit from the move to local sourcing.
