Supply Chain Plan
From the Paper:"Today, Brazil is the fourth largest aircraft producer in the world (Fisher, 2002) and its economy is the largest in South America (Brazil, 2009). Notwithstanding the geographic distances involved between Brazil and the United States, the country is becoming an increasingly important exporter of goods of all types and is well situated to take advantage of new opportunities for establishing strategic alliances with companies in the United States. In spite of its attractiveness as a potential site for Slow Wing's secondary operations needs, there are some considerations that must be taken into account in order for such a venture to be successful."
