Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The use of computers in management training is very common nowadays, and still evolving. Computer simulation games are an important aspect of this development but, as with most applications, need to be updated from time to time as a result of major improvements in background technology. The paper describes how a stand-alone business game developed in 1987 was converted to run on the LOTUS 1-2-3 spreadsheet system. The resultant package is found to have a number of significant advantages over the original game - but there are costs also. Details of the development together with views on the overall viability of this type of project are summarised below.
