Advice on international machine tools procurement issues


Jul 26, 2022
Hello everyone,

My name is Chloe and I am a Masters student at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, leading a team to solve manufacturing supply chain issues, specifically in the area of machine parts procurement.

We are conducting research to better understand what the biggest pain points are for procuring more obscure parts. So I am reaching out to you to see if you can spare fifteen minutes to help us better understand the issues that you face and would like to be solved. Please reply to this post and then I can send you a zoom link.

Additionally, a questionnaire can be also filled out. Here is the short survey link.

We think Practical Machinist community is the best place to reach out go CNC maintenance professionals. Please kindly help us understand what you have experienced when trying to find foreign manufactured parts!

Best Regards,
