We got to meet our Professor Dr. Lori S Cook. My first impression about her is really good. I think she is a good teacher. During this class, She was trying to teach us something about operations management, and as she said, she likes to make us do class exercises. So during this class, we got to do the first exercise.
This exercise was making the paper puppets. Though I was not involved with the workers or even the timer guys. I was observing the whole operation. The teacher acted like the project manager, and 5 class colleagues were doing the assembly line workers job.
During this exercise, each worker was given a task to be done. The teacher was putting pressure on them as she was acting like the project manager. As a result, they were trying hard to finish as much paper puppets as possible. I was observing the behavior of each worker, since the last three workers were sitting idle until the second worker finishes her job. Her task was a longer task than the rest, thus she was a bottleneck. The class was fun and we have learned a lot.
Some of what we have learned from this class was:
Note: Part of our class, we are required to write a blog post on our class blog, I wrote almost the same content there, link
Here are some pictures that I took during class while we were doing the exercise: (Note: Some faces are blurred because they asked me to blur their faces).
