Abstract

This chapter is excerpted from 'Operations Management in China'. Leading business schools routinely offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in operations and supply chain management.

In 2018, US imports from China reached USD600 billion. Half of these imports were bought by US manufacturers. A dependency on Chinese goods is even greater when looking at US supply chains. Sixty cents of every dollar that US consumers spend on goods made in China go to US workers and companies. Successful operations and supply chain managers understand manufacturing in China. This book takes readers inside Chinese organizations and shows how factories are built, labor is managed, goods are sourced, quality is controlled, and logistics are handled. Through this immersion experience readers are able to see the opportunities and pitfalls manufacturing in China.
