In this meetup, we will analyze the dynamic structure of the beer game supply chain, build a simulation model and investigate some effective supply chain management policies.
The Beer Distribution Game was originally developed at MIT in the 1950s to illustrate how difficult it is to manage dynamic systems – in this case, the dynamic system is a supply chain that delivers beer from a brewery to the end consumer. What makes the game so intriguing is that the structure of the supply chain and the rules of the game are simple, yet the resulting behavior is quite complex.
You can play the game right here:
If you would prefer to play the game on a separate screen try beergame.transentis.com In our meetup, we will analyze the dynamic structure of the supply chain that is featured in the beer game and will build a simulation model for it using the Business Prototyping Toolkit (BPTK). Using this simulation model we will then investigate the supply chain management policies needed to keep the supply chain under control and play the game well.
The event will start with an online presentation – we will then open up a "virtual coffee lounge" with a video share and online whiteboard for post meetup discussions.
