D: Share I/TDD information with all supply chain members
D': Do not share I/TDD information with all supply chain members
B: Ensure a coordinated supply chain whose members share and strive toward common goals
C: Ensure sensitive information is kept confidential in order to protect each member

In order to Increase throughput/profit according to Throughput-World-Thinking I must Ensure a coordinated supply chain whose members share and strive toward common goals and in order to Ensure a coordinated supply chain whose members share and strive toward common goals I must Share I/TDD information with all supply chain members. But, in order to Increase throughput/profit according to Throughput-World-Thinking I must also Ensure sensitive information is kept confidential in order to protect each member and in order to Ensure sensitive information is kept confidential in order to protect each member I must Do not share I/TDD information with all supply chain members. I can't both Share I/TDD information with all supply chain members and Do not share I/TDD information with all supply chain members.
RelationAssumption(s)Injection(s)
D-D'Members of a supply chain cannot both share information and keep information private.
B-DAll members of the supply chain will work together cohesively in order to increase surplus of the entire supply chain, as opposed to seeking their own personal goals and objectives.If it can be proven that all members of a supply chain profit greater when all members work toward a common goal instead of each working toward their own personal goals, then we can invalidate at least one assumption.
C-D'It is commonplace for a supply chain member to seek its own goals and objectives instead of working toward the good of the group. No other supply chain member can be fully trusted.
A-BAs long as each member strives toward the common goal of increasing throughput in the supply chain, total supply chain surplus will be maximized, and each member's profits will also be maximized.
A-CIf each member in the supply chain strives toward their own personal goals, each member will reach their full potential, and the supply chain as a whole will operate to the best ability possible.
