CSCR organizes supply chain game competition
January 19, 2013
 
The Center for Supply Chain Research (CSCR) organized a Supply Chain Game Competition in Seminar Room. This event was conducted by Asher Ramish, Assistant Professor, Supply Chain Management and Director MBA Program. The Supply Chain Distribution Game is a simulation of a supply chain with four co-makers:
-The retailer has to fulfill the end consumer’s orders
-The wholesaler has to fulfill the retailer’s orders
-The distributor has to fulfill the wholesaler’s orders
-The factory has to produce the units to fulfill the distributor’s orders

A total of 170 participants took the role of a co-maker and based on their current stock situation and customer orders, decided how much to order from their suppliers. The game proceeded in weeks. Every week, each supply chain group had to proceed with the steps according to the case instructions.

All co-makers had a common goal: Minimizing costs for capital employed in stocks while avoiding out-of-stock situations. The surprising results of the simulation explained inefficiencies of supply chains known as the Bullwhip Effect.
