Typical projects

Typical project of the 90's: FI, CO, SD, MM, PP, sales organizations, warehouses, distribution centers and maybe factories.

Typical project of this decade: trade company in Luxemburg, Switzerland or other low tax country; stocks owned by the trade company but physically in a different location; outsource production but control the planning of raw materials and possibly reorder from a central location; have the outsourcing partner stocks and in-process productions in the system as if it was a standard plant.

It's amazing the base model continues to be the same. But in the past it was clean and now it looks quite twisted.
