English: Bullwhip effect
Bullwhip effect (or whiplash effect, or Forrester effect) – the phenomena in supply chains of “amplification of demand variability from a downstream site to am upstream site” . In other words, demand variability increases as we move away from the real source along the supply chain. The “distance” might be the number or supply chain members in particular supply chain; or production lead time.
