MIT says the following about the Beer Game:

Although the value of managing each component of the supply chain in order to maximize customer service and profits is clear, the value of taking an integrated approach to managing the entire supply chain is not so obvious. The Beer Game is a role-playing simulation developed at MIT in the 1960’s to clarify the advantages of taking an integrated approach to managing the supply chain; it particularly demonstrates the value of sharing information across the various supply chain components.”
