Beer game is an interactive game in which participants (from 6 to 12 people) manage the company’s stocks online.
The first game is about inventory management using the classic model, which is currently used by 90% of companies. The second game is about order generation and supply chain management using the DDMRP method.
The main task in the game is to satisfy the consumer’s demand as much as possible while having optimal stock levels.
The interactive ends with small talk: the host demonstrates the results of 2 simulation games. There are no winners or losers, the participants only compare the indicators obtained after each of the games, and make conclusions – which of the 2 methods they would trust stocks in real life.
Beer Game is developed by Agilea and Demand Driven Institute.
The game will be useful for:
Head of Supply Chain department, TOP management of companies
Production directors of companies
Logistics, Procurement, Planning and Production Managers
