Not learning basics can be costly in supply chain

A supply chain comic designed by Lokad. Headline: Not learning the basics can be costly in supply chain. An intern on the replenishment team mistakenly places a massive order, confusing SKUs with product articles. He gazes at a warehouse already filled with goods, while a long queue of delivery trucks waits outside. A forklift driver in the warehouse looks on in surprise. The intern has cold sweat drops on his face and says: Wait, articles and SKUs are different things? The warehouse worker replies: Always have been.
