Complexity Are Us Systems Engineering Strategies

Spare parts supply, often associated with rush orders,is studied through a single case study of an advanced sanitary product supplier. This supply process is emergent. Difficulties of determining and dealing with root causes, unexpected effects, and interventive solutions for rush orders are discussed. This provides conceptual foundation for considering complex systems thinking to handle rush orders.
