Abstrakt

Today’s supply chains are not capable of managing the instabilities that is the case in the
market. Instead, there is a need to develop supply chains that are capable of adapting to
changes. Through a case study of LEGO, the authors suggest a possible solution: a
decentralized supply chain serving independent and self-sufficient local factories. The
decentralized supply chain is provided with materials, parts and pre-assembled elements
from local suppliers and supplies the local market in return.
