Abstract

The outsourcing of manufacturing functions is increasingly adopted by most of the
manufacturers. However, due to differences between outsourcer (company) and outsourcee (supplier)
regarding their locations, management methods, legal and taxation system, there are difficulties in
practicing outsourcing effectively. The motive of the outsourcing is to exploit the potential benefits.
The outsourcing will not guarantee success without benchmarking and explicitly well defined
Manufacturing Level Agreement (MLA) among outsourcing participants. This paper addresses the
concern in assisting outsourcing companies and practitioners setting up benchmarking and
Manufacturing Level Agreement (MLA).
