Interrupted! Understanding Bankruptcy's Effects on Manufacturing Supply Chains
When the authors of this manual set out to update ABI's Auto Supplier Insolvencies & Bankruptcies manual (ABI, 2006), they realized that supply chain issues had moved far beyond the scope of just financially troubled auto suppliers. Interrupted! Understanding Bankruptcy's Effects on Manufacturing Supply Chains explores the many issues that arise when suppliers are unable to make deliveries of promised parts due to financial problems. This comprehensive manual unravels the sometimes-knotty intersection of the Uniform Commercial Code and the Bankruptcy Code, and includes special sections on cross-border matters in Canada, Germany and Mexico. Also included is a detailed discussion of relevant case law such as Delphi Corporation and Plastech Engineered Products, as well as sample agreements that outline common protections against supply chain disruptions.
