The Beer Game, invented by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, stimulated the supply chain and our operations Management class had the opportunity to play it during one of their classes. The students were divided from roles such as store owner, wholesaler, distributor and producer. Every part of the supply chain ordered goods and had them delivered to its customers. Other students recorded data regarding demand and inventory for every round that was played. The goal of the game is to create optimal inventory levels with high customer service ratings. The beer game’s results illustrate how the Bullwhip effect in demand variations is created. This effect always appears due to the uncertainty of demand in supply chain. Our students had the great opportunity to better understand the importance of information sharing, supply chain management and collaboration throughout the supply chain process as well as what can happen when non-coordinated process where problems occur because of poor information sharing.

Another academic year has started and though we are happy to see our students start and continue to achieve success in their academic lives, a lot of things have changed in just one year. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone's lives globally and made us adapt to what some call the „new normal“.
