Rich, In fact, everyone is sharing the same production processes and equipment if they have an outsourced supply chain. They have similar exposures and more or less similar advantages.

You raise some good points on this subject.  In my experience it is a very challenging task to choose the correct provider.  I also believe companies change providers to quickly rather than working with them to solve longer term issues.
