A general management game has been described that simulates a manufacturing industry environment and is programmed in an interactive conversational mode using APL. The game has proved to be a valuable means of training individuals in decision-making. Further details are given in Reference 7. The game is also used for experimental purposes, and improvements are being made constantly to reflect the results of research being carried out in the fields of gaming, simulation, and decision-making in an economic environment. To the author's knowledge, this is the first major application of APL in simulation and gaming.
