Optimus - Simulation Game

IIMB Operations Society invites the talented minds to the “OPTIMUS".
Can you breach the enemy strongholds and make your stand using not ballistics but brains?
Do you have the perfect combination of "Operations" skills to sustain a war?
If you are up for the challenge... Read on

Your team will be assigned a Warzone which has a number of cities. Each city will have its own demands for soldiers and arsenal. You will have to setup a distribution channel in the war zone where you have to meet the quarterly demands of the cities. You have to use proper transport options to setup a smooth supply chain to the battlefield.

For each quarter you will be given the demands in those cities and this war will continue for 4 quarters. You will be evaluated on how you are able to sustain the cities and reduce your costs.

The simulation will be held for 1 hour. You can form a 3 to 5 member team for the event. The game will start off with a 30 minute prelim. The selected teams from the prelims will have an opportunity to match their wits against each other in the final simulation round.

More details will be provided after your registration.

Load your grey cells and start Operating.

Over and Out!
