A Comprehensive, Informational, Instructional Guide for the Implementation of Manufacturing in the Public School.
State Univ. of New York, Oswego. Coll. at Oswego. Dept. of Industrial Arts and Technology.
The effects of industry and technology are important in our society, and industrial arts in public schools is undergoing evaluation and curriculum revision in order to guide youth toward choosing and preparing for an occupation. The "manufacturing" approach used in the guide is suggested as one way toward the integration of students with their industrial culture. A brief first section contains the rationale, general objectives, and overview. The informational units which follow are designed as self-study guides for those teachers with a limited background in industrial manufacturing and cover: aspects and history of manufacturing; industrial functions; management and industrial organization; and production tooling, and include evaluation and resource suggestions. The guidelines for package implementation, developed by student teachers, can be employed for 6-, 10-, or 20-week programs. They include manufacturing concepts and student activities, implementation analysis, and possible problems and their solutions for a simulated manufacturing business. A sample mass production unit, designed for mass production techniques and special tooling, provides information and suggested activities. The final section was developed for student use and contains guides for: tooling; production; organization of a compnay; research and development; finance and control; personnel administration; and marketing.
