A Business Case Tool as Decision Support in Early Production Location Project Stages

Windmark, Christina LU and Andersson, Carin LU (2014) Swedish Production Symposium, 2014
Abstract
Globalisation makes companies enter the global market both in sale and production. Previous studies have shown that one of the main reasons for relocation and outsourcing is cost saving. There are also studies showing that companies today may benefit from a decision support model based on costs. This paper provides a business case tool to be used in the scoping phase where different location alternatives are to be roughly analysed for further investigation. The tool is to be used together with strategic analyses and more extensive risk analyses to make a solid information platform for decisions.
