Supply Chain Management: The Beer Game

Prof. Larry Navarre (Business) presented “Supply Chain Management: The Beer Game” during the Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Speaker Series. Event hosted by the Provost & CETL.  The Beer Game shows the importance of collaboration in the supply chain. The Beer Game was created by MIT Professors in the 1960s.  There is a great deal of correlation between the Beer Game and the bullwhip effect.  If you want to get a better understanding of inventory these two supply chain concepts are definitely worth researching.
