It is even more encouraging for custom design houses who have watched customers take working designs "overseas" for first production, only to have customer complaints that were traceable to counterfeit parts and bad workmanship.

This is an encouraging report for those concerned about the flight of high-tech manufacturing from the U.S. But while it's good to know that some $2.5 billion worth of electronics manufacturing operations are coming back to North America, it's impossible to know how much manufacturing will be offshored during the three year period. In others words, it's possible that while $2.5 billion worth of manufacturing operations come back, $3 billion worth of operations could be shipped overseas in the same period. Nice to see some manufacturing coming back, but net-net the result could still be more is being offshored than on-shored. (For the record, I completely made up the $3 billion number for the purposes of illustrating the point- I have no idea what the real number will be).

In future EMS companies will be more care full to keep their business growing. More over OEM's also responsible to maintain the quality at their EMS provider.

Informative article. I work for McGladrey and there's a annual report on the State of Manufacturing on the website " http://bit.ly/IzVhuU " with insights from industry experts and information you may find iuseful.

The major factor of outsourcing the products manufacturing is the saving costs, but at the same time compromising on the quality and time/scheduling. If the workmanship has become affordable it is natural that it will stop encouraging outsourcing.
