Schuch-Miller, Diane M.
The candidates enrolled in one of three degree programs offered through the Greenfield Coalition (GC) have a unique learning situation where classroom exercises link with their job experience. Situated at the Focus: HOPE Center for Advanced Technologies, candidates work in a real manufacturing production environment by day and attend courses by night. In order to export these experiences to students enrolled in other manufacturing engineering programs, GC developed case studies accessible online. Cases currently available support courses in engineering economics, statistics in manufacturing product launch, forming technologies, and tool and fixture design. A wealth of resources including interview transcripts, WWW links, raw data and expert advice are accessible online for learners to investigate each case and complete the required tasks. Includes six figures. (Author)
