Supply Chain Simulation
This Supply Chain simulation game involves determining what generates value in a process and removing or reducing the steps which don’t. By reducing waste of materials, time and energy, production time is reduced and profits are increased.
This is an activity based learning pack which focuses on customer service through Lean Processing. It is a table top activity suitable for anyone in the office, factory or supply chain who needs to understand or influence customer service, process improvement and balancing workloads. The key concepts of ‘lean’ are progressively introduced and participants are driven to think for themselves and challenge existing ideas, approaches and behaviours. Finally, the learning is consolidated and linked to the workplace.
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
Aims and Objectives
The Supply Chain Simulation is a competitive, engaging and energetic lean game that introduces the principles of lean processing. It's perfect for:
- Introducing the fundamental concepts behind lean processing
- Generating excitement and enthusiasm about lean processing
- Getting to 'buy in' to lean programmes
- Bringing lean theory to life
- Demonstrating how lean can improve job and customer satisfaction, and business performance
- Encouraging participants to identify how lean processing could improve their workplaces
The simultation includes 5 phases each of increasing complexity, but for many participants the 1st, 2nd and 3rd phases cover the required learning outcomes.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
All areas within Supply Chain as well as other supporting areas such as Manufacturing, Production, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology
The critical issue of customer focus and the importance of links between the customer and internal departments
• The crucial role of effective, timely and accurate communication, and information flow
• How customers’ orders can determine the speed of processing and reduce work in process (WIP) by “pulling” product through processes
• How continuous flow can improve productivity, customer service and profitability
• The concepts behind, and the effective use of visual triggers and signals (Kanbans)
How lean processing can be applied in situations as diverse as retail, assembly, health care, and office environments at work and what participants can do to ensure their effective use
