Outsourcing Evaluation | 7 September, 1998

I would like to do a fair evaluation of the costs involved in outsourcing PCB assembly work vs. the costs of keeping the work in-house. If anyone could recommend articles, text-books, or cost models that address this, I would be truly grateful. Please send replied to mdemos@oconee.rms.slb.com . Thanks!
