Product Overview

The case follows the analysis of a proposal to insource production of certain parts for the Ground Support Equipment (GSE) division of JBT AeroTech in 2015. The primary motivations for the proposal were rising costs due to vendor price increases and long lead times. The GSE division believed production could be done internally at much lower cost and that, with increased control of production, the firm could reduce lead times and working capital as well.
