Abstract

Although most production now takes place in Southeast Asia, the United States still contains significant enclaves of this production. More complex and expensive models tend to be manufactured in Asia. It is shown that domestic production involves very different labor processes from those of production based in other countries and domestic producers gain advantage by carrying smaller inventories through faster lead times.
