First of all, thank you to all for reading. I want everyone who has requested the spreadsheets to know that I will send them out as soon as I get a chance. In exchange for sending them out, I would appreciate everyone who is using it for a project to write a short article detailing how it was useful to you. I will read all the articles and will post the one I feel is most beneficial to the IMR community. I won't hound you for the article, but I feel like this will be a positive learning experience for all of us.
Second, I want to reply to Felipe and Ryan for their comments on my article on Wal Mart's Suppliers. Excellent comments by these two gentlemen. They have remind me that I need to devote an article to the bullwhip effect. I will be short on time for the next week or so, but I plan to write the article soon. For now, I will say that the bullwhip effect typically is more of an issue further down the supply chain then that close to the consumer, however, you are correct, suppliers have a harder time with service level then Wal-Mart does. Thank you Ryan and Felipe, and thank you to everyone for reading.
