The Supply Chain Game 模擬供應鏈軟體

The Supply Chain Game 是一個線上的供應鍊模擬軟體。在一個典型的設置,學生分成小組,並分配一個或兩個工作持續一個星期的相互競爭。為了滿足五個地區不同的需求模式,學生團隊設定生產與庫存控制參數,運輸選擇,並加新的工廠和倉庫。本場比賽的目標是在比賽結束時以最大限度地提高現金。本軟體是專為供應鏈的選修課而設計開發的。

The Supply Chain Game is an online supply network simulator. In a typical setting students are divided into teams and compete against each other in one or two assignments lasting a week each. To meet different demand patterns in five regions, student teams set production and inventory control parameters, transportation choices, and add new factories and warehouses. The objective of the game is to maximize cash position at the end of the game. The game is designed for use in supply chain electives or core courses that emphasize supply chain management. Learning objectives include:
  • forecasting
  • inventory and production control
  • supply network design
  • logistics​
The Supply Chain Game was developed with Professors Sunil Chopra and Philipp Afeche at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
