Random lunchtime conjecture, could be the pastrami talking:   
correlation between "standardization" (i.e., homogeneity,  
interoperability / interchangeability of parts, etc.) at the retail  
end and length of supply chain (measured however you would like, but  
probably topologically rather than geographically.)  Not linear- 
causal;  probably recurrent / non-linear feedback loops.
