Looking to improve workflow on your projects? Simulations promote concept attainment through experiential practice. They help participants understand the nuances of a concept. Simulations are more deeply engaging than other activities, as participants experience the activity first-hand, rather than hearing about it or seeing it.  Not to mention, they are a fun way to learn!

The Batch-Pull-Balance Simulation helps participants understand two production laws and a production control method that can be used to improve project performance in terms of duration and cost. It is based on the concepts learned in the traditional Lego airplane game offered by LCI.The simulation demonstrates the impact of batching/WIP on cycle time and project duration. In addition, the simulation demonstrates the impact of balancing process steps and reducing bottleneck duration on throughput and project duration. This highly-engaging, virtual simulation event is 120 minutes including a group debrief of the experience.
