The Bacardi Southampton case series (A - D) follows the transition from a push-based supply chain to an agile, pull-based system. The (C) case is a one-page situation about the old paragon of operational thinking to let students know that Tradall has approved a new low-proof production facility for European demand, and it will be run contradictory to Southampton agile methods: long production runs, few changeovers, and large inventories. Southampton wonders if it should continue the agile transformation at all.
