"Is five years a long time in world of electronics?"

It absolutely is. Just think back to the costs of consumer electornics and what was available in 2007-08.

Well, maybe they can break the cycle like Dell did when it started changing the PC market. But I agree that supply chains are normally slower to change than any other aspect of the industry.

@_hm, interesting suggestion but I'm not sure I buy the "retreat" concept. In cyberwarfare or cyberespionage, there is no turtle-shell option. I think it's more like a hurricane. You prepare the best you can and move forward when the sun comes out.

Is five years a long time in world of electronics? Many innovations can happen and economy can take move left or right. Another aspect is change in political stability and political relationship. With recent news of Chinese espionage, many US organzation may be in retreat mode.

You need to assess the business dependency of the supplier not he service he extends to you personally. If the supplier is confident in meeting deadlines and provides material on the stipulated lead time he might be given a try. Good suppliers carry a reputation in the market which is fairly easy to get hold of. I would use it to make my decision.

@t.alex: even if there are apparently differences in terms of culture, people, way to live and so on, I think that both countries could play a strong position in the near future; people are smart and determined to leave, in certain areas, poor condition.

I think it is good if we can tell the major stuff of each sourcing country. What would be coming from Brazil and what would be coming from India?

Even if you are having a hard time with the supplier and you have an alternate available?

Rich: 

That depends on the firm that you are working with. Some firms dynamically adapt to the changes in their supply chain to create better overall performance. Yet others hold onto their outdated policies and continue to suffer.

It is turing technology into profit for advanced organizations or business processes. Since each company has a different need the dimensions may vary but the bottomline stays the same for all.
