The Beer Distribution Game was developed at MIT in the 1950s to illustrate how difficult it is to manage dynamic systems such as supply chains – in this case, the system you have to manage is a supply chain that delivers beer from a brewery all the way to the end consumers. The Beer Distribution Game is more than just a supply chain simulation – it is also about the difficulty of managing complex systems in stressful situations and making decisions in unclear situations. This video introduces gives a brief overview of how to play the game, both in single player and in multiplayer mode.
