Abstract

One month after joining the family business - a recycled paper manufacturer in Chandpur, India - a recent graduate must confront an arcane inventory ordering process that has led to both a stock-out and an overstock within six months of each other. This disguised case requires that students cope with the variable nature of a supply chain for recovered waste paper in addition to logistic and projection concerns.
