Production Performance is a business simulation with a focus on the production process of corrugated paper.
In this industry it is important on the one hand to ensure high availability and performance of the equipment to produce high-quality corrugated paper and on the other hand to reduce operating costs at the same time. The learning objective is to understand the impact of investments in machinery, maintenance and people on productivity and profitability.
