Experiencing Production Ramp-Up Education for Engineers
Bassetto, S.; Fiegenwald, V.; Cholez, C.; Mangione, F.
European Journal of Engineering Education, v36 n4 p313-326 2011
This paper presents a game of industrialisation, based on a paper airplane, that mimics real world production ramp-up and blends classical engineering courses together. It is based on a low cost product so that it can be mass produced. The game targets graduate students and practitioners in engineering fields. For students, it offers an experiment in which methods learned in separate courses can be applied. For practitioners, it affords an opportunity to engage in reflexive practices related to industrialisation. Both students and practitioners are able to experience integrated management, required by industrialisation, in a controlled environment: the laboratory. (Contains 5 tables and 4 figures.)
