  • Purpose and learning objectives

    Case 2 with the sub title Mass Production is an assignment covering 3 core areas from the PRT curriculum; Business Technology (BT), Production Engineering (PE), and Materials and Manufacturing processes (MMP).

    You are working in groups to set up new production facilities in a new country with another culture to meet a new market demand of a designer lamp.

    Your main task is to plan and set-up the new production facilities by viewing the new production from operational and strategic angels on a new market.
