  There are 3 types of decisions made in a supply chain, shown in Figure 2. As Figure 2 shows there is a hierarchy inherent in these decisions and the upper level decisions (at the top of the pyramid close bracket here - Lauren directly affect the lower level decisions, e.g., the monthly production plan at a manufacturing plant is directly affected by the decision about whether to build the plant or not, the daily production levels at a manufacturing plant are directly affected by the monthly production plan. Would it be better to use semicolons to separate longer ideas like those listed in the previous sentence? - Lauren However, the lower level decisions indirectly affect the upper level decisions, e.g., it is often cheaper to buy land to build a production plant in rural areas, but the day-to-day transportation costs from rural locations may be much higher.
