Business Simulation - Manufacturing Sector 3-day

PURPOSE

This action-packed 3-day simulation is aimed at anyone occupying a management position and includes those in a services function. It revolves around a generalised Manufacturing and Packaging Process in which teams compete with each over a number of shifts to produce and sell products of a specified quality. Operational challenges (Eg: Breakdowns, absenteeism, safety incidents, non-conformances, re-cycling) are provided to force process analysis and continuous improvement. Outcomes include a list of prioritised goals including corresponding projects and project teams. (Projects are optional)

Can also be used for TEAM BUILDING, days can be negotiated.
