Micromatic and Mogul are computer-based business simulation games that simulate a small manufacturing company.
The product is sold through retail markets to the general public.
The prices you charge for your products, the level of quality you build into them,
plus how you choose to promote them, are decisions you will constantly face.
You will also have to decide whether to make the products yourself or to sub-contract the manufacture of them to another company.
Maven is a computer-based model that simulates a small marketing company that sells up to two products in one, two, or three regions. The products are sold through retail markets to the general public. The two products are not substitutes for one another, nor are they complementary. This means that the sales of one product do not effect the sales of the other product. You do not make the products yourself; you sub-contract the manufacture of them to another company.
There are two versions for the Micromatic, Mogul and Maven simulations, Team and Solo. In Team you will be part of
a group that will manage your company. Your company will compete with other companies in the same
marketplace that will be managed by other groups in your class. In Team,
the administrator processes the decisions that teams make regarding the operation of their company
after collecting the decisions from all the competing teams. After processing, the teams will
make a new set of decisions based on the results of those just processed.
Each decision-round represents three months of operations (i.e., one quarter of a year).
Solo is the play-alone version of the Team.
The solo version places you in competition with companies managed by the computer rather than by
other groups in your class. The computer uses its own logic to manage these companies.
While your competitors will act rationally, they are not all-knowing, perfect competitors.
With practice, you can successfully compete against these companies.
In Solo you process the decisions for the companies.
This includes the decisions you entered for your company as well as those determined by the
computer for your competitors.
