  9. I need some Grade 2 white alpaca,
    some Grade 3 white alpaca,
    some white merino wool, and
    some white romney wool.

    What’s a reasonable quantity for “some”?

    Who gets that message? Everybody in the network? One farmer? One spinner?

    In Valueflow terms, does the Designer use a recipe to plan a set of processes for
    the whole supply chain?

    Does each Process include a Request for a Process Agent to fulfill the input

    Should the planning algorithm stop if it finds some inventory at some stage and
    request those resources and be done?

    Or does the Designer send a set of Requests to each Agent for them to plan a
    Process to fulfill the Designer’s requirements at that stage in the supply chain?

    Or does the Designer send a Request to the Spinner, who sends a Request to
    the Scourer, who sends a Request to the Farmer?
