 Research - The Bullwhip Can Really Beat Up a Supply Chain - Stanford GSB
Whang and Lee, the Thoma Professor of Operations, Information, and Technology, are describing the "bullwhip effect," named for the variations in reaction down the length of a whip after it is cracked.
The bullwhip effect happens in manufacturing when information about consumer demand—for diapers or for any other product—becomes increasingly distorted as it moves upstream in the manufacturing process.
A third cause of the bullwhip effect is a practice known as "gaming"—intentionally presenting manufacturers with a false picture of consumer demand.

As a long-time professional bullwhip artist and teacher, I've given lessons and workshops to such varied audiences as karate teachers, kids, actors and cowboys.

I do not teach bullwhip handling in order to impose my view of the universe upon anyone, but this in no way diminishes my pleasure as I watch students teach themselves, as I watch them listen to their own bodies and listen to the whips.

 The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin DVD Review
Bullwhip was actually the second film issued by the Disney studio in the wake of its namesake's passing, arriving in theaters just two and a half months later.
At the start of the film, Bullwhip Griffin (Roddy McDowall) is neither adventurous nor known as "Bullwhip." He's simply Griffin (Eric Griffin, to be precise), the butler of a wealthy family in mid-19th century Boston.
Bullwhip Griffin is an old-fashioned hero, one whose adventures should be the stuff passed around by mouth over the years.

This bullwhip was adapted somewhat to better suit the American market by shortening the stiff handle section and giving it the appearance of having a handle section for gripping.

 News from Berkeley ITS, NewsBITS Winter 2005: the Beer Game and the Bullwhip, Carlos Daganzo on a new theory of supply ...
The phenomenon was named the Bullwhip Effect because the wide fluctuations experienced by the supplier who is farthest away, e.g., the person supplying hops for the beer, are similar to the wide fluctuations at the end of a long whip.
There is a large body of literature on the Bullwhip Effect, and Daganzo undertook to review it (enlisting the aid of a number of Ph.D. students).
Using that assumption, any method for smoothing out the flow of goods and eliminating the Bullwhip Effect would have to be able to anticipate the customer's behavior all of the time, but that is not possible.

 Excerpts - Bullwhip Effect in Supply Chains
The ordering patterns share a common, recurring theme: the variabilities of an upstream site are always greater than those of the downstream site, a simple, yet powerful illustration of the bullwhip effect.
Forecast variance at each level of supply chain gets amplified if forecast is based on downstream partners' forecast (instead of actual end user demand) and if forecasting policies (like lead time), methodologies and assumptions differ.
Bullwhip can be effectively mitigated only through measures that are combination of Information Sharing, Channel Alignment and Operational Efficiency measures.
