Harvard Business Publishing offers two simulations about supply chain management. Supply Chain Management: Root Beer Game is a team-based simulation that demonstrates how oscillations in a root beer supply chain develop and create a dynamic known as the “bullwhip” effect. Students take on roles representing the retailer, the wholesaler, the distributor, and the factory. In Global Supply Chain Management, students set up a supply chain to deliver two mobile phone models. Students examine the entire manufacturing supply chain and consider how best to optimize a supply chain to meet variable demand. Source:
