We follow the use of IT in the genesis of one of Cadbury’s brand new chocolate bars – the Bar of Plenty. We meet the design team creating the wrapper, the administrators managing approvals for the design ideas, the employees on the production line ensuring that the appropriate recipe is used and that the chocolate supply is flowing properly and the staff in the distribution warehouse who ensure that the bars are dispatched on time to the correct shop or supermarket.

This clip could be used to prompt classroom discussion in the following areas: How is IT changing the way people work in a factory? How does IT save time at the wrapper design stage? Have you any understanding or experience of using any of the software mentioned in the programme?
