Changes in decision parameters must be avoided. Usefulness of the simulation The simulation is useful because it evaluates project performance using real criteria, such as the scope, schedule and
Once the exercise was over and as the individual points were displayed a lot of things became clearer. Having experienced the system and then debriefing later on, helped in filling a lot of gaps in information that seemed to exist during the simulation. With a better understanding of ‘the rules of the game’ and some of the strategies that did work, it is difficult to introspect now without a bias. As the saying goes – “Hindsight is wonderful. It's always very easy to second guess after the fact. “– Helen Reddy
My answers were not decisive which reflect my weak critical thinking skill. For example, when it comes to medication administration, in instances where things are not clear, it should always be referred to the doctor which in this case I belatedly remembered. Nurses should also make sure that they knew how to use all the equipment that is used in the nursing care. In a medical emergency situation, every second counts. In the simulation, epinephrine administration was delayed since the nurse did not know how to use the automatic injection. Over-all the simulation had a significant impact to my learning process.
Change Simulation Experience “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.” - Charles Darwin Charles Darwin’s groundbreaking theory of evolution was certainly not restricted to species in the wild. Adapting to change in any corporate environment is fundamental to the
Project Description This project involves the remodeling of the master bathroom by replacing the fixtures, the appliances and the tiles to emanate a sense of peace and tranquility. Our objective is to create a whole new environment. One that is pleasing to eye as well as
Quarter 1 &2 Since quarter one was the first quarter of this simulation, I was unaware of how difficult it was going to be to make all the different decisions. Firstly, I had to choose a Company name. Because I was selling computers, I thought that the name “Dev-Tech” was a perfect fit being that this simulation was about development and technology. Next, I had to choose a target segment. I knew going into this simulation that it would be better to invest in the more expensive goods as it would benefit me in the end. The segment that didn’t care about price was Mercedes, so that is the segment that I made my first priority.

B1 After I had made my choices in quarter for I checked the pro forma and made adjustments to factory capacity and demand to insure we could hit profitability. I did cut too close on the inventory because we had loss sales due to stock outs. The lost sales did not come close to what our losses where due to excess capacity and inventory holding costs in Quarter 2 and Quarter 3. Pro forma are a crucial peace of the Simulation. Once I fully grasped the concept I was able to make better decisions for Lean in enterprises.
How to Decrease Turnover of Non-Professional Direct Care Staff in Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities Introduction An Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities, or ICF/IID (4), is an optional Medicaid benefit. ICF/IID provide services for clients who are non-ambulatory, have seizure disorders, behavior problems, mental illness,
Many times, time and perseverance is the key to the best result possible. But like Gary Collins said “We can try to avoid making choices by doing nothing, but even that is a decision. Therefore, decision making is in us relentlessly whether we want it or not.
Background: Recently, Tricia-Mart opened new branches to its existing ones. The management are keen on improving efficiency and services of the company. There are many ways in which this improvement can be done using simulation software: higher quality and efficiency from capital assets, better management of inventory, higher return on asset, this list is endless. But some of these improvements could be made without simulation, so the real question is ‘Why use simulation instead of another method such as real life experimentation?’
Goals and Rationale During this round of the simulation DTL strategically leverage the cost and benefits of various
The purpose of this paper is to describe the experience of the cascade simulation conducted in MBA 622: Critical Thinking. My cohorts and I were instructed that we had one hour to rank 12 items salvaged from a small plane in order of importance relative to survival. We were first
Preventing Complacency with Simulation Training The first key component of preventing complacency errors is ensuring staff retains the ability to identify errors. Complacency errors have been known to be reduced greatly through educational training (Goddard, Roudsari and Wyatt, 2011). Staff believes that because it is a computer system the data retrieved is accurate. However, computers systems can’t replace the knowledge learned through experience and critical thinking. One way to ensure that critical thinking skills remain intact is through simulation training and removing the decision support systems (DSS) functionality. Within Utilization Management we use a system called McKesson- Care Enhance Review Manager(CERME). Staff
All the techniques assisted in following the decision making steps including measuring the impact which is easily forgotten. It is very important to ensure our decision was effective and if it was not. Understanding why the decision was not effective and re evaluating the alternatives and the issues that come into play will help us identify what was missed or overlooked so the problem can get fixed. This also helps ensure the same mistakes are minimized, if not identified so the same issues do not reoccur and something can be learned for the future.
Our fourth criterion was complexity of the processes involved. In our analysis, the more complex processes often result in higher chances for imperfection or failure. We also felt that processes that require a trained specialist to enhance would not benefit from our analysis because of our lack of understanding the methods. The fifth criterion was personal interest. This was to ensure we were all engaged and interested in working on the decided project.
