FP6: The visible horizon of the focal agent is subject to attenuation, where distance is based on factors including physical distance, cultural distance, and closeness centrality.
Our conceptualization of the supply chain allows for a distinct (relative to a particular product and a focal agent), bounded (by the visible horizon, which is subject to attenuation), and thus parsimonious unit of analysis.
To facilitate our discussion of future research opportunities, we juxtapose the structure (physical and support) and boundary (inside and outside the visible horizon) of the supply chain in the matrix shown in Figure 2.
First, there are numerous research questions which might arise based on our conceptualization of structure--the physical and support supply chain--and the boundary of the supply chain as the visible horizon. Could we conceptualize the portion of the supply chain that lies beyond the visible horizon?
This route takes us toward cultural lighting, thus providing a visible horizon
and additional diverts en route, should we have another chip light (we identify the most dangerous hazards, implement controls and make prudent risk decisions).
The conditions were low light, with no natural visible horizon
To do so, I would look left and right to check that the wingtips where parallel with the visible horizon
. It appeared that, unless I pulled back on the stick, I would hit one of those milk producers right in the nether regions.
Despite the lack of visible horizon
, I decided to expedite getting airborne; we would take off unaided and goggle-up later while in flight.
It felt exactly the way it feels in the simulator: a hard-to-control aircraft and no visible horizon
. So I stuck to the basics: altitude, airspeed, attitude, and torque, grateful for those daytime flights in which we secured the AFCS for airwork drills.
