The applicability of Progress Function concepts to the problem of dual sourcing a product at two manufacturing facilities within a firm is considered. Using Progress Function concepts, a model is formulated which considers the transfer of progress or know-how from the original manufacturing facility to the second facility. Manufacturing data on five products, dual sourced within a firm, are used to evaluate the model.
