Mimic Supply Chain Simulation - Coming Soon!

Put Classroom Concepts Into Practice

Mimic Supply Chain asks students to apply forecasting models to real-world supply chain scenarios, meet demand, optimize inventory levels, select transportation methods and warehouse locations, and perform other vital supply chain tasks. Mimic Supply Chain lets students experiment with the concepts you’re teaching them in a low-risk sandbox environment.

Spend less time prepping and grading and more time helping students get valuable practice with Mimic Supply Chain!

Mimic Supply Chain Student Learning Objectives
