DISCUSSION BOARD QUESTION
After watching the video, Supply Chain Management: The Beer Game, create your own thread
discussing at least three concepts presented in or that you learned from the video
DISCUSSION BOARD 1
The Beer Game Even though the benefit of dealing with every section of the inventory network so
as to augment client management and benefits is clear, the benefit of adopting a coordinated
strategy to dealing with the whole store network is not all that self-evident.
The Beer Game is a pretending reproduction created at MIT in the 1960's to clear up the upsides of
adopting a coordinated strategy to dealing with the production network; it especially shows the
benefit of sharing data over the different inventory network segments. Initially, David Simchi-Levi
and Phil Kaminsky built up a modernized Windows TM variant of the amusement. In view of their
work, we have built up The Web Based Beer Game which permits different clients to play a solitary
diversion in the meantime.
There are two essential necessities for The Web Based Beer Game. To begin with, you have to
utilize the Microsoft Internet Explorer; the Beer Game won't keep running on Netscape Web
Browsers. Second, you likewise need JavaTM Runtime Environment, Standard Edition v 1.4 on
your PC. On the off chance that the Java Plug-in is not as of now introduced on your machine, the
Beer Game will consequently download it for you. We prescribe that you download the JavaTM
Runtime Environment before you play the diversion since the Java Plug-in is expansive and it might
take the length of 20 minutes relying upon your system association with download it.
Consider a streamlined larger inventory network, comprising of a solitary retailer, a solitary
distributor which supplies the retailer, a solitary merchant which supplies the distributor, and a
solitary manufacturing plant with boundless crude materials which makes (mixes) the brew and
supplies the wholesaler. Every segment in the inventory network has a boundless capacity limit, and
there is a settled supply lead time and request postpones time between every segment.
Every portion of the production network tries to take care of the demand of the downstream
segment. Any requests which can't be met are recorded as delay purchases and are met as quickly as
time permits. No requests will be overlooked, and all requests should, in the long run, be met. At
every period, every part in the inventory network is charged a $1.00 deficiency cost for every put in
a raincheck for the thing. Additionally, at every period, every area is charged $.50 stock holding
cost per stock thing that it possesses. Every segment claims the stock at that office. Furthermore, the
distributor claims stock in travel to the retailer; the merchant possesses stock in travel to the
distributor; the plant claims both things being produced and things in travel to the wholesaler.
Overall, each production network part arranges some sum from its upstream provider. It takes one
week for this request to be in contact at the provider. Once the request arrives, the provider
endeavors to fill it with accessible stock, and there is an extra two-week transportation delay before
the material being dispatched by the provider touches base at the client who submitted the request.
The objective of the retailer, distributor, merchant, and industrial facility, is to limit add up to cost,
either exclusively, or for the framework.
DISCUSSION BOARD 2
After watching the video “Supply Chain Management- the beer game”, I have learned of the key
ideologies that ought to be useful in the management of supply in any business. I have also learned
that every business involves competition and every person must play his or her role to the very best
in order for the team that he or she is in to merge the best. The same case applies to managing the
chain of supply whereby all the stakeholders must play their roles effectively so as to achieve
competitive advantage for a business.
In addition, I have learned that the small changes that take place and ones that are implemented by
the consumers present large changes in the chain of supply. I have also learned from the video the
effects that poor understanding of the chain of supply can have. Poor communication can also affect
the chain of supply very negatively (Wisner, Tan and Leong, 2014). Additionally, the game
educates on the impacts that fluctuations and backlogs of inventories can have in a business.
Therefore, regardless of the size of each stakeholder in the chain of supply, every business needs to
ensure that the chain of supply is well managed and this can be achieved by keeping the costs of

balanced approach. Mason, OH: South-Western Cengage Learning.
