Simulations to learn and work better together
The Beergame App promotes the use of digital games for Supply-Chain learning and continuous improvement.
We provide an online multi-player simulation based on the Beer Distribution Game.
You can create an instructor account to host and organize sessions.
Paid plans allow you to customize parties to your own industrial context and teaching purposes.
The Beer Distribution Game was developed at MIT in 1960. It is used daily all around the globe, in different contexts : at university, corporate trainings, seminars, coaching sessions..
Students control a facility (store, warehouse, factory..) part of the supply-chain of a beer company. Their goal is to supply the right amount of units throughout the chain so that final customers can be served.
The beergame app lets you organize beergame sessions much more easily. Students can use a computer or their phone to play, all the data is stored in your instructor account and statistics are calculated automatically.
👋 My name is Mathias Le Scaon. I gratuated in Industrial Engineering and worked for several years at several stages along the Supply-Chain. Before the beergame app, I also used to develop PC games as side-projects and won 2 independent video-games competitions.
A first online beer game simulation was released in 2015. Between then and 2019, more than 200.000 parties were created with it. After several interviews with users I decided to re-write the application to include more features, and an instructor Dashboard. So this site is actually a Beergame App v2 ! 🙂
The Beergame App partners with professional coaches and consultants all over the world to animate engaging business trainings.
