    Supply Chain Management Competition

    • Philippe Marier, presenter, Université Laval

    Come live the supply chain dynamics in this serious game adventure. The Wood Supply Game has some similarities to the worldwide known MIT’s Beer Game, but with a pinch of salt making it a bit more challenging and a lot funnier to play. In this game, you will learn the major causes of supply chain inefficiencies, and more importantly, what you can do to avoid it.

    This is a friendly supply chain competition where we play to learn, not to win. Each participant will manage a business unit of a supply chain made up of seven interdependent enterprises. With one or two customers to satisfy and one supplying site, you will have to minimize the overall supply chain cost made up of inventories and backorders.

    The Wood Supply Game has been played over the Internet around the world by managers, CEO’s and students of all degrees. Twice a year, an international Wood Supply Game competition take place with students from universities in the United States of America, Canada, South Africa and Europe. Last year, the game won a prize for best E-Learning tool. So do not hesitate, it’s your turn: come, play, learn.
