Abstract for: Getting Started with the Beer Game on Steroids (BGOS)

This workshop is intended for SD practitioners looking to apply the concepts of the Beer Game to real-world supply chains. The session will be conducted as a hands-on workshop and will provide software that participants can use at their own organizations. Instruction will be provided for how to navigate the BGOS application, how to set up simulations in BGOS, how to plot results, and how to make model changes. Participants will learn how to model large, complex supply chains using a simple drag-drop-connect approach. Participants should bring their own computers. Prior to the session, participants can download the required BGOS software application at www.beergameonsteroids.com. CDís will also be provided at the workshop. People without computers are welcome to watch or team up with some else that brought a computer.
