Productivity decreases, but using the current assembly line to produce multiple products saves a large capital investment for the company. Within the simulation the old version of the airplane becomes a commodity and profits drop substantially, while airplanes with style modifications command higher prices. You can moderate a discussion about how relatively small changes can improve plant efficiency, reduce capital investment and improve employee attitude.
Each Lean Zone® Agile Manufacturing kit includes:
8-page instruction manual
1 deck of airplane cards

Lean Zone® Agile Manufacturing is a simulation kit designed for use with Lean Zone® Production Methodologies. It demonstrates the ability of a standardized production facility to produce customer or marketing variations of standard designs with the standard production work cell. Using the current assembly line to produce multiple products saves a large capital investment for the company, and employees realize how relatively small changes can improve plant efficiency.
Overview: Agile is an add-on to Production Methodologies. Agile uses the cell developed in Production Methodologies and demonstrates how to manufacture different variations of the product in the same cell.
Main teaching points: Multiple Product Variations Flow through the Same Work Cell.
