The effects of unmanaged complexity are particularly evident in production and the supply chain. Companies need a strategy for the future to adapt their production and logistics systems to volatile markets in ever shorter cycles. Customer expectations must be met better than by the competition in terms of quality, time and cost. The processes are complex and require the smooth interaction of many stakeholders. Functioning networks are a fundamental success factor for manufacturing companies.
