Moreover, the bullwhip effect still remained in force even when the demand uncertainty and operational causes were removed [55]. 5 Heuristics and Biases 41 a recent study by Su [218] suggests with a model and some experimental data that the bullwhip may also arise from pure bounded rationality (imperfect optimization) even when no biases per se are present.
