Students compete in OJ Game

Feb. 20, 2013

For more than 15 years, the OJ Game, also known as the Princeton Orange Bowl, has been challenging teams of students in ORF411: Operations and Information Engineering to create the best virtual orange juice business. The teams are tasked with coordinating the operational and financial logistics of their virtual business in a real time simulation, while Professor Warren Powell and a group of support faculty and graduate students monitor team progress and performance, introducing unanticipated dilemmas along the way. In the months leading up to the game, student teams formulate contingencies that will help them analyze and execute in response to the game’s challenges. The Office of Engineering Communications recently talked to students and instructors alike in this video and article highlighting the OJ Game.
