Strengthen critical analysis and decision-making skills for the real world

Operations Management Simulations

The new interactive and robust MyLab Operations Management Simulations give you hands-on experience in real-world roles, helping you link course concepts to on-the-job application. Using real-life situations, you evaluate information and then engage in decision-making and critical analysis. By receiving real-time, dynamic feedback from stakeholders, you will see the actual impact of your choices and can gauge your performance against individual, peer, and system metrics—with results recorded in the MyLab Gradebook. Easy-to-use and self contained, these simulations cover the most-assigned topics in operations management while allowing for easy integration with learning objectives.
