Purpose of the Championship

The Championship is a platform that allows to reveal leaders and experts in the operational management among companies, organizations, and MBA schools, and to support professional and career growth of the participants.

process of the Championship

During the Championship, the teams will have to control manufacturing enterprises and to find the most effective and efficient operational solutions. The development, implementation, and assessment of the results and effectiveness of the proposed measures will be carried out using a digital twin of the enterprise developed by a leading company in the field of digital solutions. The virtual representation of the enterprise’s processes will allow teams to track the impact of their decisions on the key indexes of the enterprise in real time.

The enterprise performance improvement will happen during 3 stages:
Stage 1: "quick win"

Teams will be challenged to find the "quick wins" - the most effective measures in terms of timing and cost of implementation, as well as the resulting effect.
Stage 2: Comprehensive Improvements
In contrast to the first stage of "quick wins", the second round includes a more systematic approach to the problem and a need to determine a correlation between processes and their indexes.
Stage 3: "Roadmap for the Development"
Using all the data obtained in the previous stages, brainstorms’ results and hypothesis analysis, the teams should develop a roadmap of further improvement steps to improve the efficiency of the enterprise and present it to the expert jury.
