BEER GAME

BEER GAME

On 27-28 April 2015 there was a workshop held in Szczawno Zdroj. Following departments participated in the workshop: logistics, quality, production, suppliers’ development and controlling.

The first day started with a short lecture conducted by Michal Radziszewski - Quality Manager. The subject was to reduce inventory level. For this purpose we used a turtle diagram that allowed us to identify risks affecting this process.

The next day we spent on a beer game which main purpose was to present the flow simulation of orders and goods between the brewery, distributor, wholesaler and retailer. We could observe the so-called effect of the bull whip, which is a standard mechanism in the supply chain. Everyone had the opportunity to see how important it is to guarantee a proper communication process.
