Re: Supply Chain Considerations

I agree and what I found really interesting was the effect of just one part - fasteners - could have on production. I spent my engineering career designing and building test sets for in-house use so the logistics of mass production never entered the equation - each test set was never duplicated more than  2-3 times. I enjoyed reading this article and learning about a well-thought out design for a fastener for OEMs and even more, getting a peek into how challenging the logistics can be for mass production.

Very well thought out product solution that addresses logistic considerations in addition to design considerations.  This should help to boost sales for this product line.
