GOLDRATT'S DICE GAME

From "The Goal" - The book every Amazon executive reads

Discover the secret to dramatically INCREASE throughput and REDUCE lead times without compromising your reliability or increasing costs

Unlock the secrets with the new interactive Goldratt's Dice Game

Secret #1

Why most organizations are not able to reliably achieve their output targets

Secret #2

Why efforts to improve resource utilization often reduce output and increase lead time and WIP

Secret #3

What small but counter-intuitive change can result in BIG output and profitability improvements

THE DICE GAME is based on Dr. Eli Goldratt's best-selling book "The Goal"

Dr. Eli Goldratt's book "The Goal" has sold more than 10 million copies and has revolutionized manufacturing. It has become the go-to book not just for Fortune 500 executives, but also for MBA students, management teams, and business owners.

The Dice Game is how protagonist Alex Rogo discovered why systems perform well below expectations when they have variability and interdependency between processes and machines.

Now, for the first time, you can have access to the DICE GAME in the form of an Interactive Simulation Model to discover: How to dramatically improve the performance of any system in a very simple but counter-intuitive way.

Focus and Finish empowers you to complete all tasks of one project before moving to the next. This method not only improves your focus and workflow but also enhances your efficiency in task management.

Benefit #4
Manual Mode vs. Simulated Mode

Begin with our Simulated Mode to establish a performance benchmark. Once you have this baseline, switch to Manual Mode where you'll estimate how well you can do, and commit to how fast you will complete all tasks.

To test your estimations and commitments, you'll first complete all tasks through multitasking and then through single-tasking. This will let you see if you met your commitments and determine which strategy made you most productive.

Using this simulator, you'll come to understand why it's so hard to estimate how long it will take to complete a set of tasks and make reliable commitments.

Inspired by Dr. Eli Goldratt's book
"The Haystack Syndrome"

In "The Haystack Syndrome," Dr. Eli Goldratt, the creator of the Theory of Constraints, introduced the P&Q Factory challenge. This challenge, centered around a seemingly simple factory setup producing only two products – P and Q, unveils the complex layers of decision-making in business operations.

Dr. Goldratt used this example to help people understand how complicated and nuanced profitability calculations can become, especially when production constraints are involved.

We developed the P&Q Factory Simulator to make the insights from The Haystack Syndrome more accessible, in the form of an interactive simulator. Users can immerse themselves in the challenge, experimenting with various strategies to optimize factory performance and profitability.
