This paper is a report by the team that took home the trophy in the first ABSEL Georgia Southern College (GSC) Multinational Game Competition, which was held during the winter, 1986. It discusses the tools that were used to analyze the data and convert it into information and knowledge needed to make the decisions, how the team was selected and the simulation itself. The assumptions and theories used by the team are also discussed. The paper describes the group dynamics, including how the team members interacted, especially when encountering severe problems with one team member. This paper was written in drafts produced by the three team members and consolidated into a single paper by their team advisor.
