MBA SIMULATION GAMES

MBA Simulation XM Guides and Tips
with Excel file for Sales Forecast & Production Calculation

 

1. General winning strategies for simulation exam (XM)

1.1. Overview of the Simulation Exam

Simulation Exam (XM) is quite similar to Simulation game. The general strategies to win the exam simulation is to R&D new products, name after the old products and try to locate their market segments, this will make calculation of sales forecast and production more easily. This game has four product segments. Thrift is similar to low end, core is similar to traditional, nano is similar to size and elite is similar to performance. The marketing, automation and capacity is important to win the simulation. We compete with 03 computer control companies, each will focus on specific segment, therefore we often can not defeat each company in one segment but we can lead in all segments with much higher total sales and net profit. So, the winning strategies are adding new products and applying the reasonable strategies of marketing and production, support by finance and human resource, TQM strategies and win the game in all 4 rounds.



First step is to download industry condition report, then use the number from industry condition report to put in first line in excel file. The formula automatically calculates the strategies for all 4 years (4 rounds). We will use strategy 2 to win the simulation in 4 rounds.

1.2. Using the Excel file to support all 4 rounds

With the excel file, we can keep track of all rounds update and R&D products, keep updating products as close as possible to ideal spots. Also, the excel file will support calculating prices, sales forecast for each product in each round, as well as calculating productions for each product each round, this is the key to win the game. This simulation for exam has 4 product segments: Thrift, Core, Nano and Elite. We add 4 new products as close to ideal spots of each segment as possible, and also update the old products, for each segment we will have two products supporting each other and can sell better than competitors. This is zero sum game, so when we can gain higher sales, we can compete better.

 

 

* Drift rates are the following, which is put in excel already

Segment/ Perf / Size

Thrift +0.5 -0.5

Core +0.8 - 0.8

Nano +0.8 -1.1

Elite +1.1 -0.8

* Also, we adjust product each round using adjustment to get closer to Ideal spot.

We need to check and make sure products match their segments

 

We also see the details of customer buying criteria for each segment from Industry Condition Report or Courier Report.

 

We have prices and MTBF for each product as follows:

- Thrift: Price 22, MTBF: 18.000 (17.000)

- Core: Price 30, MTBF: 20.000 (19.000)

- Nano: Price 38 and MTBF: 22.000 (21.000)

- Elite: Price 42 and MTBF: 24.000 (23.000)

We also keep track of prices for all the four rounds as follows:

2. Sample Winning Strategies

2.1. Round 1 Strategies

R&D

For R&D, we add 4 new products in all the 4 segments, which are close to the ideal spot and can sell well from round 2. Try to control the launching date early next year, so we have enough time to sell new products. Round 1 and 2, we will get normal sales, from round 3 and 4 we will get much higher sales than all competitors.

Note:

- We can also select to add 3 new products in 3 segments and still win the game.

- We can also select to add 2 new products in 2 segments and still win the game.

Marketing decisions

For marketing decisions, we apply 1.500 for sales and promotion budget.

Also, using the excel file for calculating the sales forecast and production for round 1.

We can add 10% because we have good product and also good price, high promo and sales budget.

QUICK Q&A for CompXM (Update 2018)

 

R & D - Should do

Download Industry Condition Report

Add Round 0 numbers into Excel file, Excel file will automatically calculated Ideal Spots for All products (4 to 8) in all 4 segments: Thrift, Core, Nano and Elite for all 4 years.

Tip: 

- Thrift and Core need 2 years to update to ideal spots

- Nano and Elite can update to ideal spot right from round 1

- Should add new products in Nano and Elite

- Also should add new products in Thrift can Core

- Both strategies can win the game

Tip:

Elite and Nano- Max MTBF

Core and Thrift- 3,000-4,000 lower than the max (depending on competition always be better than them)

Tip:

Can use 18.000 - 20.000 - 22.000 and 24.000 for MTBF for 4 segments

 

Marketing:

Price - you want it to be about a 40% contribution margin if possible

Elite and Nano - Max Price

Core and Thrift - A couple of dollars above the others (be competitive but keep higher due to your higher MTBF)

Sales/promo budget:

- round 1: 1500 

- round 2: 1500 

- round 3: 1400 

- round 4: 1300

 

Tip:

If you like high sales and net profit right from round 1, can use 1.200 - 1.400 - 1.600 and 2.000 in 4 rounds.

Note that round 1, 2 can have high sales and some net profit, because of strong investment in R&D, new products, add new capacity. Round 3-4 will have both highest sales and net profit, leading the game.

 

How to calculate Sales forecast: the formula is as follows

Benchmark prediction * .55 = sales forecast (not so good)

Last round units sold x segment growth (good)

Note to check suggestions to adjust forecast, also check customer preference.

 


ProductionSales forecast * 1.15 - inventory in hand = production schedule (if you have inventory on hand)
Sales forecast * 1.20  = production on hand (if you do not have inventory on hand)

Capacity:
Add capacity to each as needed to each product plan to produce 100-200 more than your current sales forecast for the next round. 

 

Tip:

- Keep the 2nd shift capacity as low a possible, about 50% (because 2nd shift cost is higher than first shift)

 

Automation:Add 1 full point (6.0 to 7.0) each round to each product.

This can be 4-4-6-8

Then 5-5-7-9

Then 6-6-8-10


Human resources: do this every round
5,000

80 hours 

 

Tip:
- If you really like good sales and also some good net profit from round 1, use 3.000 and 40 hours in round 1, all round 2-4 use 5.000 and 80 hours of training


TQM:
Round:

  1. 1500
  2. 1500
  3. 1000
  4. 0 (max total 4.000 reach) 

Add this amount to each section through the full TQM for all ten TQM initiatives

Or just use 1.000 for each year for all 4 years

 

Finance: 
Issue long term debt on right side in the amount to cover the RED number on the bottom, ex.(32,000)
Make sure the same  bottom number is positive 5,000 at least.

Tip

- Round 1-2 use both issue stocks and long term loans

- Round 3 have over 50 million cash in hand, can use only long term loan or not at all

- Round 4 can retire all stocks, also retire some long term loan, pay very small dividends and keep about 50 to 80 million cash in hand.
