What is the Flow Simulation Game?
An online, interactive and educational workshop based off of the classic supply chain “beer game”, used to demonstrate the power of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP).
How does the game work?
This 3 hour course comprises of a complete overview of the demand driven material requirements planning methodology followed by two simulations: One on an MRP II model and the other using the DDMRP methodology. During both simulations, each player will be assigned a supply chain role of either: Manufacturer, Distributor, Wholesaler, or Retailer. You will be responsible for managing your inventory, shipping orders to customers, and sending and receiving orders to your suppliers.
What will be the key take-aways?
Understand and simulate the Bullwhip Effect in conventional mode, DDMRP buffer positioning, sizing, and dynamic buffer adjustments, the Net Flow Equation, and more. Understand how DDMRP can be used to strategically position inventory, increase visibility, and improve materials flow across the supply chain.
What is the cost?
The registration fee is $125 USD per participant.
