Abstract

Manufacturing Planning and Control (MPC) systems have attracted great interest in recent years. Teaching of this subject however is challenging because of the difficulty of providing appropriate examples in an academic environment. This paper describes a business game developed by a leading automotive components company. The objective of the game is to illustrate the benefits of reducing complexity within manufacturing systems in simplifying planning and control. The paper describes the development process for the game and provides detailed playing instructions. Finally, the paper reviews the use of the game in both an industrial and an academic context.
