!How to play
The game tries to simulate an good entry queue and how to visualize if the supply of goods is bigger than the room in a warehouse. Have each group of players throw dice and record the waiting line
* One dice represents the # goods in a new truckload
* The other dice represents the # open places in the warehouse
Play three rounds:
* In the first round calculate the average length of the waiting line with 0 extra spots
* In the second round calculate the average length of the waiting line with 1 extra spot
* In the third round calculate the average length of the waiting line with 2 extra spots
* In the last round calculate the average length of the waiting line with 3 extra spots
Throw 20 rounds. The punch line of this exercise is that the queue will explode if you model the capacity equal to the demand.

See [[this|/static/files/MBI/Module%2017/Overdimensioning%20of%20capacity.xlsx]] excel file for a sample result.
