by Ananth Raman, Marshall L. Fisher and Anna Sheen McClelland

Describes a supply chain with very quick (i.e., two week) response times and allows students to explore how such short response times are achieved. Allows students to explore why other supply chains, with much longer response times, might not be able to replicate this performance.
