ABSTRACT
The article reports on the massive back orders being faced by materials managers on items across the board from high-consumption plastic and petroleum-based medical products to critical devices. However, some supply chain managers suggest an overreaction and that there is no quantifiable difference between back orders now and two or five years ago. If materials managers aren't facing a full-blown back-order crisis, they are at least encountering kinks in the supply chain.
