Each variation of this theme is designed
to illustrate a different aspect of the scheduling problem.
The course content is based upon a process of self exploration
and thus develops a deeper understanding from within.
The participants are invited to attempt to schedule
the plant using their own experience, intuition and
the lessons taught as the simulations proceed. The results
are recorded by the presenter, the specific points addressed
by that simulation discussed, an improved strategy agreed
and the participants perform the same simulation a second
time. Their performance is then compared with the earlier
result and lessons learned discussed.
The process is a cumulative one. The lessons learned
at each stage build to a complete understanding of the
