Scenario: “CHLORO CHEM”, a chemical manufacturing company, has set up a manufacturing plant in Lahore. The company aims to produce a range of chemicals used in agriculture and food processing; which results in a number of variants of the products.

Currently the company is following a LEAN supply chain strategy with the target to have large amounts of finished products to be held in stores.
