For this discussion, the initial post by each student should be in the range of 200-250 words. During the first week, many people answered the questions well. However, this week I want you to think about potential consequences. For instance, what is the actual cost of large buffer inventories? What constitutes large and what constitutes small? For a JIT shop like BMW, they only stock about 1.5 days worth of engines. The rest are constantly streaming from Germany to South Carolina. What could potentially go wrong with this type of operation? etc. This is just to give you an idea of the direction I would like to see the class move. Below are this weeks questions. Enjoy!1.

Discuss in depth one of the Logistical Integration Objectives which begins at the bottom of page 40.3. Give an example of Performance Cycle Uncertainty that you have seen in the real world.module 3Hi Everyone!
