    To address these risks, companies should consider their operating models, in an effort designed to define an optimum balance between financial efficiency and assuredness of a stable supply chain. Companies that once maintained backup inventory and manufacturing facilities may have exposed themselves to risk as they concentrated on working with fewer redundancies, using the “Kaizen” model calling for “just in time” or even “just in sequence” production with minimal in-process inventories; geographic and operational concentration of assembly and parts production; and a high level of subcontracting.

    Very true. But also high level of subcontracting still exposes you to the melodrama replete with betrayal, infidelity and promiscuity and also where you have your contract Manufacturer eventually becoming your competition.
