“TWiG – The WiP Game” is a lightweight Simulation of a WIP limited pull system like, e.g. Kanban. In contrast to more elaborate simulations, it is a simple way to let the players get an idea of working in a WiP limited system. TWiG is not designed as a learning tool. You already need to know the basics behind WiP limited pull systems in order to play it. The required playing time is only around 90 minutes. TWiG is inspired by the simplicity of Featureban and the charming, event-driven getKanban.
When should TWiG be used? TWiG is not a learning simulation. Basic knowledge of WIP-limited systems is required. It is best to use TWiG at the end of a training session in order to simulate the knowledge learned in practice. It is also great as a starter for the topic of metrics.
The latest version is 1.5. The simulation consists of at least two files:
– TWiG 1.5 CORE – ALL LANGUAGES: This file must always be downloaded.
– TWiG 1.5 _language_: The language file for your favorite language which must also be downloaded
TWiG is a community product! Thank you to all the people who translated TWiG into another language, who built things into it and of course all those who use TWiG and give constant feedback to improve the simulation. THANKS!!
