Distance learning simulation for educational institutions.

Make education interesting for your students!

ChainSim brings together the classical e-learning and business simulations on a powerfully simple educational platform. We improve our customers’ Production, Logistics and Supply Chain Planning learning processes by utilizing our ChainSim simulation systems.

Simulation enables our clients to use their resources for better competitive advantage in teaching and to support all academic units in their assessment of student learning/development process. Main steps to go through ChainSim simulation: demand review, supply review, production review, financial integration, business results review. 


infograaf1 Studying Operations and Supply Chain Management  with ChainSim will enable students to solve complex business problems related to the journey of products and services from the manufacturer or provider to the end customer. Students will gain an understanding of the techniques required for managing and improving the integration of resources, processes and customer requirements.

Student/team act as the manager of a small cell phone assembling company. Mission is to:

1) fulfill all client’s needs;

2) leave 50 units of each component in stock (optional);

3) leave 0 final products in storage (optional);

4) earn maximum profit (prices of the final products are fixed).

The assignments require simple calculations which will help you understand the basic relationship in the supply chain.


If teacher log in to the teacher’s view, where it is possible to get a clear overview of group member’s results on every level and give feedback/marks according to the results. On the ranking list teacher will see when and who have finised the simulation. By pressing on the button ”Students Results” detailed simulations will emerge.

During a classroom, the teacher can open the ranking list and organize a competition between the students or teams, demonstrating who will make the best results. Ranking tables and graphics will stay in the server and the teacher can open the results every time if needed.


After completing ChainSim five level courses, students should:

  • Demonstrate an ability to apply general management know-how in practical business situations
  • Have the skills required to use Lean tools to decrease expenses and improve efficiency in Supply Chain, and Manufacturing sectors
  • Measuring cost and performance in Supply Chains
  • Understanding the basic frame and key issues of Supply Chain and Production Planning
  • Define the supply chain concepts and key managerial processes
  • Develop analytical methodologies for Supply Chain analysis
  • Develop systematic thinking and making students understand that every decision affects the whole chain
  • Learn how to optimize the basic cost of procurement, inventory management and transport logistics
  • Supplier selection, assessment, sourcing strategies, total cost optimization. Bill of materials.
  • Analyze the manufacturing operation of a firm
  • Learn and test how to apply Lean manufacturing concepts
  • Improves decision making in teams
