3. Assuming the role of a consultant given the charge of implementing TOC-based SCM solutions, develop a cloud (use www.evaporatingclouds.com webapp) clearly identifying all its elements (A, B, C, D, D'), surfacing assumptions and suggesting how you might go about challenging one or more of these assumptions and ensure successful implementation of your idea. Note: We discussed the idea of computing and sharing T/IDD values for the parts/products throughout the throughput chain. We discussed and heard both sides of the arguments by playing the role of a CEO of a SC link of The ADF SC network. Recall The ADF SC network, managed conventionally, was losing money, missing due dates, piling up wrong inventories at wrong places. I want you to develop a cloud to understand whether or not SC members should compute and share T/IDD values across SC).and thus, promote Throughput-world-thinking (TWT) in this SC Network.
