Firstly thanks to everyone who took part in the Beer Game last week. Everyone seemed to enjoy the experience and found the sessions informative. For such a simple game it is amazing how well it demostrates some of the pitfalls in managing supply chains - the most notable being the 'bullwhip effect'. But that is why it is a classic.
During the show a number of participants asked whether we were going to make the resources available and we are more than happy to do so.
Here are links to the 'Rules', 'Scoresheets' and 'Conclusions' that we used last week:
You can also download the files from the Resources page on our main website. This has got lots interesting papers and presentations with many relevant to logistics and the supply chain - Volume 2 of The Journal has papers on 'How to Generate Maximum Value from the Supply Chain' and 'E-tools for sourcing logistics services'.
