Averages always lie in Supply Chain

A comic from Lokad's supply chain series titled: Averages always lie in Supply Chain. It features a presenter with a pointer directed to a chart comparing two demand probability distributions, one above the other. The top distribution is bell-shaped, indicative of a normal distribution, while the bottom one is bimodal, with two peaks. The pointer is aimed at the area between the peaks of the bimodal distribution, suggesting it is the average, which is notably in a local minimum where the values are least frequent.
