    Manufacturing

    In fourth grade we manufactured key chain bead kits using the assembly line. A student had a craft book with instructions. We bought cord, key chain things, beads, and Zip-lock bags.

    We had to define the tasks, design the assembly line, choose a supervisior, have quality control, shipping, and sales crews. Before assembly could begin, the cord had to be measured and cut, the beads had to be sorted by color, little signs had to be made defining each task. We had to have shipping and sales departments.

    After we began selling (as part of the school's fund raising project) we had to deal with missing items (quality control), unable to assemble (customer support), special requests for colors (customer service) and out of stock items. We learned a lot, and it was great fun!
