Change the world

School of Management Sciences


Prof Gideon Horn from Logistics Management was invited by the Buinsess School at the Hochschule Reutlingen in Germany to participate in the Learning Factory Project. The project took place during the week, 27-31 July 2015.

The Learning Factory is a replica of a factory where students practically assimilate real world logistics processes and activities.

This year the product assembled was skating boards. With the aid of computer programmes, the students had to order all the separate, individual component parts; manage the inbound stock; plan assembling; and ensure its on-time release to different work stations.
