2014 TEACHING FELLOW DEVELOPS FACTORY SIMULATION PROJECT

Former engineer and 2014 KSTF Teaching Fellow Taylor Williams developed a factory simulation project to teach logistics and statistics to his engineering students. A summer internship at Proctor & Gamble inspired the project. After learning about the model factory, his students managed their simulations in groups via a web application. Read more about the project on Taylor’s blog.

    This project concept is TERRIFIC!! I like the concept, the modeling aspect, the encompassing of engineering …and I suspect the kids get a real kick out of the requirements of a disciplined, pragmatic approach to a REAL problem.

    One minor comment: a summary up front of THE PROBLEM, and a graphical display of the work flow, for the initiated could be very helpful for the casual reader, as well as for other teachers and students.

    I am also curious on how many meaningful responses we have had.

    With the greatest enthusiasm and respect

    Harry
