How can information flow be used as a lever for transforming systems so that overall optimal system behavior emerges from the aggregation of locally satisficed decisions?

  • How can supply chain models and methods be used to analyze and redesign flows of information?
  • How can multiple different information flows be integrated to provide the right feedback at the right place and at the right time to actors and subsystems in the system being studied?
