Abstract
Automotive suppliers are under mounting pressure to satisfy two conflicting customer demands: to cut costs and to open more factories in fast-growing emerging markets so that they can be closer to their customers´ assembly plants. Striking the right balance between cost and proximity in global manufacturing networks will be one of the industry´s greatest challenges.
