Skateboard Manufacturing

This semester, the Skateboard Manufacturing Team is going to use experience from crafting skateboards in the previous semesters to develop and refine a manufacturing process that can be used to consistently produce 10 to 20 skateboards in a month. By testing multiple methods for each step in the manufacturing process and measuring their effectiveness, the team will be able to determine which of the methods will be used in mass production. Having a refined manufacturing process will set the team up for success in the future semesters to produce well over 50 boards a semester. Once the team has established a structured manufacturing process, the process can be easily refined or added to, to aid in fixing roadblocks that arise throughout the semester.
