Purpose ¿ to model demand-driven chain networks on basis of multiple Customer Order Decoupling Points (CODPs). Design/methodology/approach ¿ literature study and a case study in dairy industry, based on in-depth expert interviews. Findings ¿ four main underlying factors of CODP diversity are addressed and modelled. Research limitations/implications ¿ the proposed multiple CODP models provide the basic setup of a reference-process model for demand-driven chain networks, and should further be developed into a formalized model that incorporates detailed implementation knowledge of different industries. Practical implications ¿ the research contributes to making the generic CODP concept suitable for process design of demand-driven chain networks. Originality/value ¿ the paper adds to existing research on CODPs by addressing the main underlying factors of CODP diversity. Based on these dimensions, basic process models of demand-driven chain networks are proposed and applied in dairy industry. Keywords Customer Order Decoupling Point (CODP), Demand-driven chain networks
