This week students have the option to complete one of these realistic simulation scenarios for this week’s discussion:
- Supply Chain Management – Manufacturing industry as supply chain analyst
- Inventory Management – Retail industry as store manager
First complete the simulation in MyOMLab All Assignments. Students may want to try both simulations (the top score will be used). Each simulation needs about 30-40 minutes to complete. There are a series of decisions applying the concepts that replicate real world situations and data in each simulation. The result of these decisions is then processed in the simulation with associated consequences and trade-offs of these decisions reflected in key performance indicators relative to the lessons.
Next think about the experience you had in the simulation and write a descriptive essay (minimum 300 words). For example, explain key decisions you made, how those decisions impacted simulated performance, lessons you learned from the simulation, etc
IMPORTANT: I will provide all log ins necessary once tutor is chosen!
