Manufacturing onshoring

December 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm ACST

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 in North America and Europe, but COVID 19 is finally prompting a re-evaluation of Australia’s over-reliance on international supply chains.

 

On 1 October 2020, the Government announced as part of the 2020-21 Budget that it will invest $1.5 billion in a Modern Manufacturing Strategy and sets out clear National Manufacturing Priorities for growth in areas including Resources Technology & Critical Minerals Processing, Food & Beverage, Medical Products, Recycling & Clean Energy, Defence, and Space.

 

Tim McLean has 32 years’ experience in the manufacturing industry and is hosting this session. He will cover:

  • 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.

 

Attendee numbers will be limited to 30 as this will be a fully interactive workshop.
