First and foremost, supply chain development should focus on Recursion.

That is - making more of the parts in-house, improving performance and improving the revenue model to the point of ending Scarcity Economics.

Some other ways include

  1. developing supplier networks among collaborators.
  2. Developing production machines collaboratively, so that more parts can be made in house.
  3. Searching existing suppliers for more favorable options: better, faster, cheaper, stronger, more consistent, better customer service, closer, etc.

This all focuses on the framework of Flexible Fabrication, as opposed to highly specialized machines.
