•   You will need an email address and the following SimID or “C number” in

• 11:00 a.m. class: C32247 & C32248

•   I have assigned students to two industries based on the first letter of your
    last name but you can trade with your classmates with my help. Each
    industry will have 3 or 4 members.
• Participation consists of running a company in the
  electronic sensor industry. There are three rounds
   – The first round (rehearsal) is individual. You must have
     completed 8 individual rehearsal rounds (see course calendar)
   – The second round (practice) is in teams.
   – The last round (competition) is also in teams.
• You will find that all of the normal financial/accounting
  data and other information a real firm would have will be
  available to you for your CAPSIM company as it
  progresses through both the practice rounds and then
  after I restart the game, the 8 years of real operation.
• Each team will have 3 members.
• Teams will be identified by their CAPSIM company
  name: Andrews, Baldwin, Chester, Digby, or Erie. There
  is one more team Ferris which will be a computer.

  used to assign a grade between 0 and 100 to
  each team’s performance relative to other teams
  in the class. (The system gives you a total of
  1000 points but through “my magic” I will
  translate it into 100.)
• Different rounds are graded differently in
  –   Round 1: 82, points
  –   Rounds 2 and 3, 89 points
  –   Rounds 4 and beyond, 100 points
