A good simulation with Lean bicycle factory
Lean bicycle factory is a Kaizen simulation developed by a Swedish software company named ludosity.com.
In this game, you are the plant manager of a company which produces 3 types of bicycles:
- Men's bicycles
- Women's bicycles
- Children bicycles
Your mission is to optimize your plant to satisfy your customers with the fewer possible defects, to satisfy your customers and, of course, to improve your financial results by generating a lot of money.
The game is about 15 minutes. You will have 6 rounds of 3 minutes. During each round, your first ACTION is to observe and understand flows and processes before performing improvements. After each round, you have to realize ONLY 2 changes:
- PLAN or brainstorm about changes that you want to do
- DO your two modifications
- CHECK impacts of your changes with available KPIs
- ACT by analyzing the impacts before performing new updates
My personal performances on this game after 6 rounds are:
- 80 bicycles produced by round
- Full customer satisfaction
- Total money on the round = 12 720
- Total money generated at the end of the game = 65 735
Are you willing to rise to the challenge and to beat my results?
