We have a long history of creating board-game style business simulations, used by Fortune 100 companies for business acumen training, which work very well. In them, participants work in teams and make business decisions, and show the results by moving tokens (like gambling chips) representing cash and other assets from one location to another on a large (A2-A1) game board. This gives a strong visual impact, and supports learning of business and financial concepts. We have a large catalogue of these simulations.
We now want to build a platform which will allow a non-coder to create a digital version of the existing simulations. In essence, this needs the following components:
• Screen designer
o Background image
• Logic and database
• Movable tokens (such as “gambling chips”) to represent cash and other assets
• Help screens with 2 levels of detail
• Admin rights to enrol users as: Designer, master admin, client admin, facilitator, player
The simulations need to be able to run with teams competing in a single market for customer orders, or against AI for single player use. The solution must be browser-only at the user end. The state of each competitor’s business must be saved at each move, so that they can reconnect without losing data; and user actions should be logged so that the designers can learn from user actions. Each member of a team should be able to see the same board as their teammates, and each device should update in real time as a member of the team makes a move.
While testing the platform, the first simulation will be created.
If you are interested in this project, please contact me to sign a non-disclosure agreement, and more details will be made available.
We are looking for proposals in the next 2 weeks which specify:
• The steps you advise in development
• The technology to use
• The timeline you expect for the project
• Costs (on a “work for hire” basis, i.e. we will own the IP completely)
We are applying for funding to support this project, and the deadline for this application is July 11th, so we need time to discuss and consider proposals before then.
