André Scholl
André SchollResearch Associate & PhD Student - University of Bern

The Beer Distribution Game is sufficiently straightforward to be used right away. Complete statistics and appealing visualizations at the end allow discussion and reflection on the game's results and have a powerful learning effect for our students.

Lutz Heldmaier

We used the Beer Distribution Game for our training about controlling a supply chain using leveling methods and consumption control. It fitted to our needs. It’s a good eye-opener if you want to show the problem of the bullwhip-effect.
