Figure 1. Business process.

 

The business process shown in Figure 1 where the customer orders online an item from a catalog of products. The product in this scenario is a bike that needs to be ordered from the factory. The agent in charge of this product places the order to the factory and communicates back to the customer. The bike is then shipped from the factory a location where the bike is assembled ready to be picked up by the customer.

The actor in this scenario is the customer, agent, and supplier in Figure 2 where the departments involved with this ordering system are sales, purchasing, and factory. These actors deal with many-to-many departments resulting in wasted time and money in a highly inefficient supply chain.

 

 Alignment

What if these departments involved from customer to supplier are now aligned as opposed to being disjointed? Figure 3 shows the result of an efficient supply chain where the savings can be passed within the chain and the agent is the key.
