Notes:

1 Duration shows the normal duration for the simulation. In some circumstances, any duration with an a superfix an abbreviated form. And any with a b superfix can be enhanced with additional, optional, activities.

2. Topics codes the topics covered by the simulation as follows:

A - Business Appreciation
D - Research and Development
F - Finance
G - General Management
H - Strategic Management
M - Marketing
N - Negotiation
O - Operations
P - Purchasing
S - Sales
T - Team Building

The level of the simulation is shown using upper and lower case. If the simulation is suitable for middle through senior management the topic letter is shown in upper case. If suitable for functional specialist, graduate trainees, junior through middle maangement the topic letter is upper case. If both upper and lower case is shown the simulation is suitable for both groups.

The sequence of topic letters shows the relative importance of the topic.

All simulations provide a degree of team building and working but those showing T or t especially emphasise the topic.

3 All simulations are available as a Fully Tutored presentation and we can quote for any size group inclusive of documentation. Travel and, if appropriate, accommodation is charged at cost. Also, if considerable travelling time is involved or the simulation is spread over a course additional fees may be charged.

4 Rental is where simulation is used on a single course for a week. Where the simulation is tutored, the rental fee is in addition to the tutoring fee and for those simulations marked with a c superfix rental is only available as part of a fully tutored presentation or after training.

5 Academic Licence are especially subsidised or sponsored editions of the simulation. The simulator is provided on a perpetual licence basis for use on full time academic courses in schools, colleges and universities. Its use for short courses or commercial training is expressly prohibited. The package includes a comprehensive teacher's manual, a copy of the simulator and the standard participant's manual for duplication. (Simulator maintenance is provided as an optional extra.)

6 Type defines the way the simulation is run and hence hardware requirements.

TM indicates that the simulation is Tutor Mediated where teams submit decisions to the trainer who then enters them into to simulation and, after simulation, returns results fo the teams. This form of simulation allows teams to interact in the market place and (except for SMITE) can handle between two and eight teams on a single microcomputer (and printer).

DU indicates Direct Use (one where the simulation is used directly by the participants) and, if appropriate, market responses are simulated by the model. This form of simulation requires a micromputer and printer for each team. (Although for simulations marked with an s superfix up to three teams can share a microcomputer and printer.

NE indicates that the simulation is a Computer Enhanced Negotiation Role Play where each selling and buying group need a microcomputer and printer.

With Tutor Mediated (TM) simulations decisions are processed synchronously and thus these simulations last longer than Direct Use (DU) simulations where decisions are processed asynchronously.
