|Description||"Acton’s Galactic Zappers simulation game challenges aspiring entrepreneurs to manage a production line to maximize throughput and quality while minimizing the cost per unit of production.|
During the game, you’ll grapple with the following challenges:
• How do I sequence activities to increase efficiency and control costs?
• How do I identify and remove bottlenecks in my production line?
• How can I use quality control to increase output and lower cost?
Using a “trial and error” approach to solve problems, you’ll develop a deep understanding of workflow—and find that “asking the right question” is often more important than having the right answer.
