So what? Were you hired to rebuild their supply chain or document it? I'd say
you've got a pretty good handle on the process, so go document it and quit

Just because you disagree with how something is designed, doesn't mean you have
authority or the responsibility to fix it. If you're hired to document a
process - document it. Let the facts in the document demonstrate the processes

More succinctly - tech writers are generally hired to explain how things are,
not how they would like things to be.
