Water utility simulation game
This is a multi-player simulation game for use in education and training. The game simulates the effects of decisions taken by utility managers on the technical, financial and commercial performance of a water supply company. The values of 18 KPI’s are calculated based on decisions and related budget allocations by the management of the company. The managers have a choice between 26 possible decisions and decide the amount set aside to execute the decision. The managers play a number of rounds representing financial years and each time the effects of their decision on company performance are calculated. Each year the management reviews the result of its decisions and prepares for decisions and budget allocations for the following year. The main goal of the game is to try to manage the utility company to achieve particular objectives that are set by the facilitator.
