This is a first-impression question.  I'll study the paper at length
later, but this one is getting in the way of full appreciation:

Is the depicted process chain mandatory, or can process
chains be configured at will, or something else?

For example, say that I don't want to use orders or invoices.
They don't add value.  If I can get an end item production
schedule or retail point of sale events, I (as a manufacturer
or distributor) can figure out what to do.  Any kind of signal 
of receipt of goods suffices as signal for payment; invoices 
are not necessary.

So can I configure a more streamlined process chain
using this proposed method (or what would you call it)?
