Round 1 – Get used to the Factory Game Model
Your Tasks in this Game Round
Now let’s have a look on the shopfloor. The moderator introduces you the following game elements:
- Assembly stations 1 to 3
- Material Boxes
- WIP Boxes
- Fork Lift
- Customer Request
Station 1 and 2 gets one empty WIP Box and places them next to the workstation. These boxes are used to move assembled components from one station to the next station and can only be moved from the forklift.
Each of the 4 employees is needed in our assembly process. A reduction in the number of employees is therefore not permitted!
The moderator shows you the assembly sequence of one pen. Get used to this sequence and get familiar with the assembly steps.
The pen consists of 3 parts:
Some steps might not be optimized right now. Do not optimize them yet, as we will go through the potentials during the game.
