Supply chain education vs practice.

Comic from Lokad's supply chain series, titled 'Supply chain education vs practice', depicting a young supply chain practitioner that looks nervous and insecurely looking at his clipboard with written purchase recommendation on it - 50 pallets of screws. He has four other people in front of him saying 'no budget', 'no warehouse space', 'there are substitute products' and finally supplier suggesting '30% discount for 100 pallets'. In his thought bubble recent student recalls a lecture where professor was explaining simple safety stock formula that he now realized is not applicable as reality is more granular and complex.
