Procuring Material Question

posted Feb 18, 2015, 9:43 PM by Ellen Kane
Question: Is it possible to get an order placed for the raw material that you may run out of in this round to be prepared for the next round (Round 1)? 

Answer: In the simulation, you cannot do this directly.  It’s built into the programming to look at leadtimes, lot sizes, rates of demand, safety stock levels, etc. and then place the order for us.   To say much more on my part would be to skirt the line of telling you an answer but there are at least three solutions I can think of quickly, that are available to you as a team, in this round, via some analysis on your teams part as well as in the rounds we play going forward on Friday.
