LOG904-110 Integrated Logistics and Operations: Learning Through Games (Autumn 2019)

About the course

Course content (abstract): We will further develop and refine our intuition and knowledge of operations and supply chain management using interactive games. The games will generally involve team participation and competition, and are computer or internet based.

 

Topics covered: Topics covered in playing the games may include product design, forecasting, pooling, the impact of variability, capacity management, managing bottlenecks, inventory management, managing lead times, customer responsiveness, and the bullwhip effect.

The course is connected to the following study programs

Recommended requirements

As a prerequisite, students are expected to have basic knowledge of operations and logistics management, however games can be played quite competently using qualitative analysis (good quantitative analysis may further enhance performance).

The student's learning outcomes after completing the course

It is anticipated that each student will come away with deeper insights in several of these areas. Also note that most of these principles apply to both service and manufacturing settings – the course is applicable to both.
