4 Managing Your Company

It’s time to unlock the doors and turn on the lights. Welcome to your company. The Rehearsal Tutorial shows you the mechanics of the company departments described below. Remember, entering decisions is the easy part; determining what decisions to enter requires some thought. This chapter and the Rehearsal Tutorial will help you get started.

Every company starts the simulation with five sensor products. Your company has one product for each segment. You have one assembly line per product. Products can be terminated or added. Your company must have at least one product and cannot have more than eight. Your decisions, made every year on January 1, are carried out by your employees throughout the year.

Your simulation might also include additional modules and plug-ins. Your simulation Dashboard will notify you if these decisions are scheduled.
