    suppliers This mechanism must be driven not simply by external impacts such as floods in Houston or explosions in Tianjin The mechanism must be at a far more finite level to extract data showing events that impacts the overall efficiency and throughput of our supply chains Monitoring Small Events not Black Swans The mechanism for screening data is therefore not just about tracking Black Swans Black Swan events don t happen very often and you don t optimize your supply chain in the expectation of a Black Swan The challenge is to be able to filter out small issues and events that happen day to day Customers change the quantity they ship inside of lead times set by the supply base and the quantities double There is a quality problem in production and the schedule falls behind while the problem is resolved The server goes down for an hour and shuts down communication Or there is a quantity shortage on a critical raw material at a sub tier supplier that delays shipment by a day These types of small but important events require the attention of a cross functional team composed of individuals from multiple functions including design marketing sales order fulfillment logistics procurement manufacturing and suppliers A demand fluctuation or a planning issue if left unresolved can quickly escalate into a bigger problem unless it is solved using the right team of individuals The later delivery may be escalated if there is a contractual obligation with the customer Small issues represent friction on the flow of the supply chain that drive up cost and impact customer satisfaction To address these issues means taking a small team for the initial assessment and building a larger team if the problem is bigger than anticipated The speed at which teams are drafted and combined to solve problems is in direct proportion to the ability to solve the problem quickly at a low cost and minimize this friction Going back to this example a problem in on time customer delivery really only becomes a major problem if the problem is not visible across a multi carrier network route The ability to quickly become aware of the problem and solve it means having the right data pulled and put in front of decision makers at the right place and the right time Improved decision making occurs when data is presented in a fashion that escalates the nature of the issue to decision makers This is also challenging if we have dispersed decision makers in Brazil the UK the US and other locations The worst case scenario is that everyone believes everything is fine until the customer notices recognizes hasn t got his stuff and contacts the company to inquire about it This is effectively the first recognition that the delivery is late but it is too late in the process to do anything about it The late delivery has already occurred So buyers are now in a firefighting mode to try to find the
