Agree with Abhik. Something very interesting, especially from a USA perspective, is the partnership between MIT and Supply Chain Digest (SCD). Take a look at MIT/SCD are doing. It's claimed this is the most comprehensive study of its type, regarding where manufacturing is headed within the US. I received this announcement yesterday - June 20, 2014 Please Help with Important New Research Second MIT-SCDigest Study on US Manufacturing 2014 Is the Reshoring Trend Real? How has Thinking Changed Since 2012? Please Help with this Important Research Survey links (also repeated below): 1. If you PARTICIPATED and COMPLETED the 2012 Re-shoring Survey, please use this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2012Respondent 2. If you did NOT participate in the 2012 Re-shoring survey, please use this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014MfgSurvey _______________________________________ Manufacturing Research Summary ________________________________________ In 2012, SCDigest partnered with MIT's Supply Chain Forum to conduct what we believe was the largest study to date on trends in US manufacturing and reshoring, with almost 400 respondents. Results of the study - which showed clear if still uncertain interest in keep manufacturing in the US or bringing offshore production back- were picked up by major mainstream media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. Based in part on interest from those organizations for updated data, SCDigest and MIT are conducting another study here in 2014. How if at all have perceptions and plans by US companies changed in the past two years? That is what the 2014 version of the study plans to answer. Click on the link below to watch a short video of SDigest editor Dan Gilmore and MIT's Dr. David Simchi-Levi discuss the 2014 research: The results will be of key interest to policy makers, business leaders and more. Of course, one important consideration for many is what the impact of reshoring activity on jobs will be. The US lost millions of manufacturing jobs in the decade leading up to the great Recession starting in 2008. It has gained back some 600,000 manufacturing jobs since the low point in 2010, but that is still more than 1.5 million fewer than at the start of the recession on 2007. Please help us by taking the 10-minute survey: 1. If you PARTICIPATED and COMPLETED the 2012 Re-shoring Survey, please use this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2012Respondent 2. If you did NOT participate in the 2012 Re-shoring survey, please use this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014MfgSurvey We look forward to your help again in 2014. Thank you.
