Abstract

This article aims to suggest to managers involved in re-engineering projects a method to assess the feasibility of manufacturing re-insourcing. At first, an analysis of the textile sector is carried out. Subsequently, a methodology is described, able to assess the feasibility of manufacturing re-insourcing. As a case study, a high production shop is then proposed and sized for the quick response requirements of a company producing young apparel lines on behalf of third parties. Finally, an economic evaluation is carried out in order to assess the profitability of the re-insourcing strategy.
