This paper considers an auto parts supplier who receives order release updates from its customers and revises its production plan for future periods on a weekly basis. The inaccuracy of the order releases causes significant costs in the form of premium expedited transportation, production overtime and excess inventory. This setting provides a rich context for studying order release variance because the supply chain has adopted a JIT approach where ideal inventory levels are kept at zero.
