August 2017 Distribution Management Exercise

During the 108th Sustainment Brigade's MCT week on 14-18 August 2017, Mr. Van Noah of the University of North Carolina leads the unit in a Distribution Management Exercise. Lt. Col. Todd Alston, Deputy Chief of Operations Group (DCOG), of Operations Group Sierra facilitated the exercise, which is an experiential learning business simulation created by faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in early 1960s to demonstrate the principles of supply chain management. A debriefing session of roughly equivalent length typically follows to review the results of each team and discuss the lessons involved.
