Threshold Competitor : A Management Simulation
For courses in Management and Principles of Management.Combining education, learning and fun, Threshold Competitor is a computer-based model that simulates a small manufacturing company producing two plastic-molded products - Product 1 and Product 2. In Team the student is part of a group managing a separate company, competing with other groups in the class in the same marketplace. Solo is a play-alone version of Team, placing students in competition with computer-managed companies. Both versions encourage students to: decide their company mission, goals, policies, and strategies; develop planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling skills; and make marketing, financial, and manufacturing decisions. The programs provide valuable feedback, rating and ranking the companies according to sales revenues, net income, return on assets, and accuracy in forecasting sales.
