Chantey Castings: A Hands-On Simulation to Teach Constraint Management and Demand-Driven Supply Chain Approaches
Grandzol, Christian J.; Grandzol, John R.
Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, v16 n1 p6-22 Jan 2018
Supply chain design and constraint management are widely-adopted techniques in industry, necessitating that operations and supply chain educators teach these topics in ways that enhance student learning and retention, optimize resource utilization (especially time), and maximize student interest. The Chantey Castings Simulation provides a platform to accomplish all three criteria. In a fun, collaborative environment, students learn important concepts related to these techniques by identifying obstacles to matching customer demand with sourcing, production, and logistics for a variety of products made from Play-Doh. Assessment data indicate the simulation is a highly-effective experiential learning activity.
