The distribution game

The Distribution Game is made by Peter L. Jackson, John A. Muckstadt of the School of Operations Research and Industrial Engineering, Cornell University.

They say about it:
The Distribution Game is a simulation game of a two level distribution system. The player controls shipments from a supplier and from a central warehouse. The goal is to cost effectively manage the flow of goods to satisfy random customer demands at multiple locations.

It is an excellent lead-in to the mathematical models of inventory control.
