As outsourced manufacturing continues, the extended supply chain requires finding suppliers for less expensive materials. The search will potentially take these companies to locations where current standards for material quality and their associated IT systems lack consistency. This makes the management of material quality information difficult if not impossible. The suppliers to the outsourced manufacturer may or may not be willing to be audited. This invites contaminated or counterfeit materials to enter the supply chain unbeknownst to the final market-facing enterprise. How can you minimize the resulting risk associated with lower cost raw materials?
