Tech manufacturing a disaster waiting to happen?

Posted on Monday, June 25 2012 @ 18:57:18 CEST by

TechRepublic criticizes the concentration of technology manufacturing in south-east Asia, claiming it's a disaster waiting to happen. Full details over here.
Examples of a growing supply-chain brittleness include manufacturers temporarily denuded of LCD screens, memory chips and batteries by fires, a tsunami, and industrial problems. With only a few plants located in south-east Asia, we are running the gauntlet of man-made and natural disasters.

Underpinning this limited number of suppliers are the producers of vital rare earths and other basic components. So we now have a concatenation of limited sourcing and manufacture in the supply chain concentrated in just one region. These set of circumstances amount to a major disaster just waiting to happen..
