Global Supply Chain Management Simulation 2) How to Play The Global Supply Chain Management Simulation Introduction In this game, you are in charge of the product introduction of two models of mobile phones. You will manage the design, forecast the demand, and choose the production schedule for the two models over four years. Hopefully, your strategy for managing the supply chain will lead to successful commercialization of the new products. Each year you will go through four rooms: the design room, the forecasting room, the production room, and the board room. Since the period for the simulation is four years, you will visit each room four times. At the beginning of the game, you will be asked to enter a team name that will be used to identify your group during the discussion at the end of this game. As you play the exercise, we strongly recommend that you take notes on why you made certain decisions and what results you would expect. This will allow you to respond to questions the board members may ask about your choices. Design Room At the beginning of each year, you will enter the design room. While the main design for each model has been completed, you have the duty each year to select among four options and determine the final configuration of the two models. Click on “Meet the Team” to get an audio-visual introduction to four of the six members of your forecasting team.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
