The Beer Game
The Beer Game is a logistics game that was originally developed by MIT in the 60s and has since been played all over the world by people at all levels, from students to presidents of big multinational groups.
The game simulates a supply chain from a beer producer through the distributor, wholesale and retail to the final consumer. The game's objective is to create an understanding of the importance of information exchange between supply chain actors.
The Beer Game require at least Java 1.7 to be launched. Java can be downloaded here
