Business need

A global manufacturer of aviation wire harnesses, based out of Nordic region

Business Objectives / Goals

  • The client requested RocSearch to evaluate countries/cities to select an ideal location for setting up a manufacturing site for aviation wire harnesses
  • They wanted RocSearch to shortlist top locations based on parameters such as manufacturing cost, accessibility to skilled labour, government regulations/ subsidies, etc.

Approach and Methodology

We divided the project into three phases:

  • Phase 1: Evaluated 10 countries for wire harness manufacturing on the basis of demographic environment, key economic statistics and locational attractiveness
  • Phase 2: Ranked the top five countries based on parameters such as ease of operation, operational efficiency and cost of operation
  • Phase 3: Benchmarked the top 10 locations in the five countries, looking at factors such as labour market efficiency, crime and corruption, value chain, etc.

Business outcomes

  • Recommended a list of locations vetted on a diverse set of parameters: demographic, operational and economic
  • Analysis was supported by both historical statistics and forward looking analysis, such as proposed government regulations/ structure, etc.
