Case 1 focuses on Beer as an end item, for the consumer. And you have to become familiar with part of the supply chain with you as a wholesaler. You will also experience the Bull-Whip Effect as you practice in the EBBD simulation. Consider the idea of feedback within a system. Feedback as some form of information that is used to make decisions about controlling rates of flow.
How does feedback, or the absence of it, help to create the bull-whip effect? What feedback would you like to have, specifically, as you determine your weekly orders for Kentucky Swamp Brew? How would get such information? When would you like to have it?

The EBBD Simulation is intened to help you learn about the Bull-whip effect as you experience what it is like to be responsible for ordering a product to distribute to your customers.
