Variable production networks offer new potentials to increase the capacity flexibility. This paper describes existing interfaces within such networks and explains how to exploit logistic potentials by subcontracting in networks. The paper’s main focus is on the mechanisms and monitoring methods needed for subcontracting due to capacity problems.
