Abstract [en]

[...]our research shows that not all offshoring decisions are based on the best methods or information. [...]a series of incorrect decisions made offshoring look like a great decision when it was not. [...]after years of outsourcing, Plant A was still the same size and unable to trim its overhead despite lower production levels. [...]one product became so expensive to produce internally that it was priced too high and failed in the market while lower-cost competitors thrive today.
