Abstract for: The Beer Game on Steroids: Do You Have What It Takes to Fix This Mess?

We have a massive supply chain in a heap of trouble. Do you have what it takes to fix it? Participants will be broken into small teams, each with their own copy of the supply chain simulation to manipulate. Teams will compete against each other and against the "optimized" solution to see who has the best approach. So bring your A game. This is similar to the popular Beer Game, but greatly expanded. Knowledge of the lessons of the Beer Game is helpful, but not required. Plan to have fun. Don't come if you're a whiner.
