Joubioux C.; Vanpoucke E. (2016) Towards right-shoring: a framework for off-and re-shoring decision making Operations Management Research vol. 9(3-4) pp.117-132
The paper investigates location decisions of manufacturing plants. In particular, it focuses on a more comprehensive decision-making process by presenting a decision-making framework which should help companies to ‘right-shore’.
The methodology of the research is based on multiple cases in the aeronautics industry, an industry known for its technical complexity and innovative nature. The framework proposed should enable companies to make better informed decisions for choosing the right location for their plants.
