Abstract

Conventional methods used to elicit risk-taking preferences have demonstrated significant disparities with real-world behaviours, compromising the validity of the data collected. Serious gaming (SG) provides a high potential to bridge this gap. This paper presents a serious game as a novel approach to elicit risk-preference in an industrial manufacturing context, focusing on the game-design and implementation using hybrid simulation modelling. The developed SG serves as a tool for conducting incentivized experiments aimed
at assessing human behaviour towards risk, to inform policy recommendations. The game incorporates two influential factors in shaping risk-taking behaviour in a manufacturing environment, namely the social learning and production pressure and use a variety of game mechanics to promote the players’ motivation and engagement. A usability study was conducted with 10 participants using the Usability Scale System (SUS) to identify problems in the usability of the game. Results have shown that our game has a good
usability.
