Dennis Unkovic is quoted extensively in American Express’ business strategy article, “How 3D Printing Helps Business Leaders Reimagine the Global Supply Chain.”
In the article he discusses the risks that came with just-in-time manufacturing, the current state of the global supply chain, and how 3D printing is reshaping manufacturing:
For nearly three decades, just-in-time manufacturing has been the norm. Suppliers and customers rely on it to streamline processes and reduce inventory that “sits” along the supply chain. Instead of receiving goods in advance, companies receive goods exactly when needed.
“But just-in-time manufacturing was a risk from the very beginning,” explains Dennis Unkovic, business advisor, author, and international attorney at Meyer, Unkovic & Scott LLP. “When it first became popular, the risk wasn’t there because the world wasn’t that upset.”
