The market globalization and the new consumption modes have an important impact on product mix variability and volume volatility. This complex demand scheme is increasingly challenging for production leaders who generally suffer from insufficient integration with other departments and have recurrent difficulties to face rapid changes in demand. This situation becomes even more critical when they lack visibility over manufacturing capacities and lead times of their vendors. There is also a general trend for productive systems to evolve from products to services which requires even more reactivity and a market oriented mindset. Social and sustainable aspects put additional pressure on production leaders who are too often not involved from the beginning in the definition of the value chain.
