Inventory theory and the Beer Game

In this paper, data from a Beer Game simulation have been used to investigate whether education on the inventory theory makes a difference, in terms of inventory planning performance. The data from the present experiment show that education on models that are difficult to apply to the Beer Game do in fact make a difference, since education increases a planner's ability to keep orders relatively constant, and to match supply with demand. The analyses show that the inventory theory matters, even when it cannot be used directly.
