    I would appreciate info on the Dice Game and any other Lean game or simulation on any Lean topic.  I am running out of ideas.

    I am looking for lean simulations that can be purchased for non-factory workers (e.g., Administration, Engineering, QA, etc).  Everything I come across is for Lean Manufacturing in a factory setting.  We already have this at our company for manufactuirng personnel, but now have a need for non-factory workers.

    If you want one that is very applicable in the transactional world I’ll e-mail you the “card drop” game which is simple, fun and does a very good job of simulating waste and facilitates the cange management part to remove the waste – in a very dynamic fashion.

    don’t buy one – if you want one that is very applicable in the transactional world I’ll e-mail you the “card drop” game which is simple, fun and does a very good job of simulating waste and facilitates the change management part to remove the waste – in a very dynamic fashion.

    HR Lean, Good morning!Per your request, here is a link with information about the The Dice Game (actually, several variations on the Dice Game):http://www.vancouver.wsu.edu/fac/holt/em530/Docs/DiceGames.htmThe advanced versions of the game can be useful in explaining variability as well as several other Lean Six Sigma concepts, such as Kanban and the Theory of Constraints (TOC).
    Best regards,

    … there is also a short video (in “RealPlayer format) showing how to do the Dice Game, at this link:http://www.vancouver.wsu.edu/vis/videoconferenceservices/ram/em/dicegame.ram

    … don’t know if the application of “Lean” at your company includes the Theory of Constraints (though, I highly recommend that it should!!) …If it does, here is a link with instructions for the BEAN GAME:http://www.vancouver.wsu.edu/fac/holt/em530/Docs/Bean-VMI-Game.pptThe Bean Game can be completed in as little as an hour, and is useful for demonstrating some of the concepts of the Theory of Constraints.

    … more about Theory of Constraints (useful with Lean):Here are some links for the Nickel Game and the Dollar Game:http://www.vancouver.wsu.edu/fac/holt/em530/Docs/NickelGame.pptHere here are videos (in “RealPlayer” format) that describe the Games:http://www.vancouver.wsu.edu/vis/videoconferenceservices/ram/em/nickelgame.ramhttp://www.vancouver.wsu.edu/vis/videoconferenceservices/ram/em/dollargame.ram
    The Nickel Game and the Dollar Game are useful in demonstrating some of the principles of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) — also useful for some related Lean principles …

    Hey Ron,
    Lame – perhaps thats your perspective and that’s fine.
    I’ve found that the effectiveness of this excercise is dependent upon the overall training session it’s self – i.e if the class is poorly put together and orchestrated then you are absolutely right – the exercise would be of little use.
    If the classes are planned well, then this exercise is an excellent medium to enable learning of key Lean elements and Kaikaku//Kaizen mentality towards rapid/accelerated change.
    so what can I say Ron … Lame is what you plan and put into it.  My excercises run excellently and are very memorable to the students..
    Regards,
    Adam

    Hi. Although I am guessing you are looking for a simple, Do-It-
    Yourself alternative, it is worth knowing that within the NIST
    Manufacturing Partnership Extension (MEP) which I have referenced
    here before, there are a few Centers offering courses with Lean
    Office simulations. In my not-totally-unbiased opinion (I was lead
    developer on it some time back), by far the best is that of the
    Colorado Association of Manufacturing and Technology (CAMT).
    The course is “Principles of Lean Office and Administration”. It
    includes an original, effective, and usually fun simulation to
    complement the course material.
    Their Website with contact info is http://www.camt.com., or you may
    contact me with questions, if interested:
    dlwright at bpex dot biz
    [NOTE: I am not affiliated at this time with NIST MEP or CAMT.]
    Good luck.
