Students in Manufacturing 1 produced 20 handsome clocks in a lesson promoting a production line. The class votes on a final prototype – in this case, a professional-looking, attractive desk or mantle clock – and then creates a flowchart to create identical products as efficiently as possible. Efficiency is the goal and a cost analysis discussion completes the project.
