Every day you scramble to respond to shifting market opportunities, but your supply chain is not equipped to keep up with your expanding and contracting needs. You continue to increase the number of stores, while the infrastructure supporting them requires more of a capital investment than you can make right now. Your company heavily promotes an item that may or may not arrive in time. Without visibility in your supply chain, you simply can't be sure.
