ALAN presents: Supply Chain Disaster Simulation

December 5, 2018 @ 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM

How would you respond to a crisis if your business supplied items desperately needed after a disaster? If you worked for a non-profit, could you ensure disaster survivors received everything they needed? What if you were a government employee charged with managing logistics for emergencies? This game-based session puts you in the role of a business, non-profit, or government organization working to deliver critical commodities to a community following a disruptive event. You’ll race against time to keep supplies moving while confronting challenges common to disaster. Performance metrics will be reviewed using data visualizations, and attendees will explore strategies for addressing real-world supply chain risks simulated during the session. Attendees should bring a Wi-Fi enabled smartphone or tablet to participate in this session. Attendees should bring a Wi-Fi enabled smartphone or tablet to participate in this session.
