Global Supply Chain Management Simulation Background The Global Supply Chain Management Simulation (GSCMS) is designed to teach intermediate to advanced concepts in supply chain design, demand forecasting, resource allocation, and production planning. The simulation gives students an opportunity to design and manage the supply chain of a global cell phone manufacturer. During the simulation experience, students design the cell phone product line, forecast demand, choose a set of suppliers with different costs, lead-times and capacities, and allocate production among their chosen suppliers. After completing the product and supply chain design phases, students observe actual monthly demand being revealed dynamically, and have opportunities to respond to demand shifts and unexpected events. To manage the mobile phone lines successfully, students must balance competing priorities and create a supply chain that is flexible enough to react quickly to fluctuating demand. The simulation is repeated over a four-year period, allowing students an opportunity to refine their
