Paper airplane game

  1. 1. Paper Airplane Simulation • In tables of 4-5, we’ll be building paper airplanes. • Value = Delivered Aircraft = 1 that Took Flight • The sooner we deliver, the better we are. • We’ll be doing a comparison of 2 approaches; each has 4 Work Centers. • The 1st work center (or a 5th person) will also serve as a recorder of times I will call out.
  2. 2. Round 1 Manufacturing Instructions • 1st work center folds corners to make noses for all 4 airplanes, pass to WC 2 • 2nd work center folds each down these down to form fuselage skins for all 4 airplanes, pass to WC 3 • 3rd work center folds each in half to make the fuselage and adds your company’s corporate logo on each side of the aircraft for all 4 airplanes, pass to WC 4 • 4th work center folds to make the wings for all 4 airplanes, then flies the 4 airplane off • Recorder captures the times of the FIRST and LAST flights Work Center 1 Work Center 2 Work Center 3 Work Center 4 Add Logos
  3. 3. Round 1 Set-up • Take one sheet of paper, set aside (this sheet may be used for a practice round). • Identify your recorder: 1st work center or 5th person. • Decide on your work centers and manufacturing flow for the 4 airplanes as they are built. • Decide what your logo will look like. • Take the next sheet, pass it through the work centers; work center 3 will add the corporate logo to the top left corner. After WC 4, pass it to your recorder. Each Work Center completes their assigned work on all 4 aircraft before passing it along. REMEMBER
  4. 4. Do you need to practice? (nice landing…)
  5. 5. Take off!
  6. 6. Round 2 Set-up • Airplane specifications remain the same. • Keep your recorder, work centers, and manufacturing flow for the airplanes as they are built. • Take the sheet, pass it through the work centers; work center 3 will add the corporate logo to the top left corner. After WC 4, pass it to your recorder. • There Is Only 1 Change To The Process: As soon as you finish ONE airplane, you may now pass it to the next work center. WC 4 may fly a plane as soon as they finish it.
