A Software Development Supply Chain Works in Both Directions.

A few months ago, somebody asked me a question - " Can Software Development be like Manufacturing ? "

My answer was "Yes."

However, there is one key difference.

Normal manufacturing supply chains work in one direction.

From Raw Materials to Work-In-Process to Finished Goods.

From the Suppliers to the Customers in a single directional flow.

Software Development Supply Chains work in both directions.

Specifications from Customers to Developers (Suppliers).

Deliverables from the Developers to Customers.

A Two-Way Flow.

Think about it.

It has profound implications for the manner in which Software Development Supply Chains should be organized and managed.
