Abstract

This paper presents a review of the Virtual Factory Teaching (VFTS) project, a web-based, multi-media collaborative learning network. The system allows students, working alone or in teams, to build factories, forecast demand for products, plan production, establish release rules for new work into the factory, and set scheduling rules for workstations. Included in the paper are a system description and list of project tasks. The evaluation component involving three different campuses is described and the results of three-years of analyses are presented, including demographic descriptions, self-assessment results, performance results, attitudinal responses, and usability. In addition, instructor observations and course project output is also examined as components of the VFTS evaluation effort. It is believed through the analysis that the VFTS is an excellent instructional method to teach students the integration of the different modules in operations planning.
