Information Velocity

Why is information velocity important in supply chain management?

Information Velocity

Information velocity = the rate at which information is communicated in a supply chain.
In order to avoid the famous Bullwhip Effect, information throughout the whole supply chain has to be updated when needed.
Be careful: not only velocity is an issue; surely accuracy and understanding data are as relevant.

In this era of lean manufacturing inventory can be replaced with information.
