Classroom Ideas

Could be used to help understand the difference between manual and automated production systems. Each stage in the process of producing a filled, labelled bottle could be identified. Students could be given a partially completed flowchart and then label each stage including feedback points for quality control. This could help to understand how to explain a quantity production process.
