If you change one thing in a supply chain, you know that one or more other things will be affected. So you must make decisions for the good of the entire supply chain, not for a specific area.
For instance, the system losses in all other areas may greatly exceed the benefit to the one area. This causes the supply chain to lose efficiency.
In what mix?
When is it made?
How is it scheduled?

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENTSECTION 1Understanding the Market – Supply Chain Relationship4 – MARKET DEFINITION, SEGMENTATION, AND TARGET MARKETINGALAN L. WHITEBREAD
In this example, the key attributes are Hispanic, ages 25-34, with household income over $50,000 per year having one or more children. The target market segment is the intersection of all four attributes. It is the small colored area named TARGET.
[Oxford - MacDonald - video]
When a firm uses the market segment approach it usually has between three and eight market segments.
Market segments that are not nearly unique result in lack of brand loyalty and consumers being less brand loyal [cannibalization]. Venn diagram explanation.
Remember - the number of market segments is a function of your market segmentation, not some arbitrary range. The more segments you have the more complex and expensive the marketing effort is likely to be.
“Lubbock’s leading radio station”
ATTITUDES, INTERESTS, & OPINIONS [AIO] for instance:

Buys on the Internet, goes to stores only as required

The market profile should provide almost everyone that reads it a very similar picture of the people in this target market segment!
You must define every term so there is a clear understanding of the profile!
CHANNELS OF DISTRIBUTION
TWO LARGEST TARGET MARKET SEGMENTS
MARKETS / SEGMENTS
In this example, you have to decide which target market segments are good for your firm. #1 needs a channel of distribution you are either not in or have a very weak position. That is very hard to do. #2 and #4 are nice size. A large firm will attack #2, but #1, #3, and #4 may be too small to be of interest. #3 is the hardest of all because it has channel and product mix issues.
YOU ALWAYS NEED TO IDENTIFY A UNIQUE OR NEARLY UNIQUE RESPONSE / BEHAVIOR PATTERN FOR EVERY SEGMENT!
