Kühne Logistics University Students Develop Logistics Quiz iPhone App

The students in the Master in Global Logistics program at Kühne Logistics University (KLU) - Wissenschaftliche Hochschule für Logistik und Unternehmensführung - have developed a new Logistics quiz in their Supply Chain Management course.

We've done it! If you enter "KLU" as a search term in the Apple iTunes Store, you can now download the free Logistics and SCM quiz developed by KLU students. Under the direction of Professor Dr. Kai Hoberg, the 26 students put a trimester of hard work into the project. "Our aim was to develop a quiz that mapped all of the areas comprising Logistics and, at the same time, would be fun and informative for both the students and the experts," said Hoberg. The future logistics experts developed a multiple choice game with eleven areas of Logistics for players to choose their area of play from: Humanitarian Logistics, Production Logistics, and Maritime Logistics, for example. To create the quiz, each student was asked to develop 15 questions with varying levels of difficulty and work out a variety of possible answers. "The KLU quiz is highly interactive, intuitive, and lots of fun. We wanted the game to introduce the different areas of Logistics and reach a broad target group," explained Paloma Piris, one of the students who worked on the app. The group of students has successfully created an entertaining, instructive game. "We are very proud of the result and hope that the game appeals to many people," said Piris. "We especially want them to use it as an educational game for entertainment." The game is now available via the iTunes App Store - free of charge.
