Supply chain simulation competitions are a good way to teach both supply chain skills and teamwork - a combination much in demand these days. Students practice applying what they learn in readings and lectures to solve problems in realistic supply chain simulations. And the simulations show which
The U.S. Department of Defense is embarking on an initiative to create a more agile and adaptable medical force. Healthcare depends on medical logistics, and military medical logistics needs to change and adapt to handle a future environment characterized by volatility, uncertainty and complexity.
Gonzalo Florez-Giraldo is working on his degree in global supply chain management and logistics at Houston Community College. A degree in supply chain management opens up a lot of opportunities, because Houston is a hub of commerce with its busy seaport and its location at the center of a
Supply chain simulations are usually so complicated only a few experts know how to use them. But SCM Globe simulations are both easy and accurate. That makes them useful to a wide audience of academic, professional and business people. Anyone wishing to teach about supply chains, or analyze the
SCM Globe is Used in Community Colleges, Universities and Graduate Schools When students apply theories and principles from readings and lectures to solve problems in realistic supply chain simulations, they reinforce learning with practice. The result is a deeper level of understanding and greater
MODSIM World is dedicated to promoting cooperation among academia, industry and government for applying modeling and simulation technologies to help organizations anticipate and prepare for the future. Governor Terry McAuliffe of the state of Virginia gave the keynote address to open the conference
Let’s investigate a high-level conceptual design for applying game mechanics to coordinate the actions of a network of separate companies that all do business together. These companies are manufacturers, logistics providers, distributors, and retailers, and they are all members of a common supply
Sam Walton decided to build a company that would serve a mass market and compete on the basis of price. He did this by creating one of the world’s most efficient supply chains. The structure and operations of this company have been defined by the need to lower its costs and increase its
