Scheduling jobs in a fashion workshop is the context for this Nuffield exploration. There are six people in the workshop and a series of jobs to be completed in one day.
The key processes which developed include:
*Representing - identifying factors that affect decisions, producing a clear plan for the six people who contribute to the completion of all tasks in order, within the constraints of a working day.
*Analysing - working logically towards a workable job sheet, recognising the impact of constraints and assumptions.
*Interpreting and evaluating - relating findings to the original problem, adjusting solutions to improve their workability and justifying decisions made.
*Communicating and reflecting - presenting solutions clearly with explanations, considering the assumptions made and the appropriateness and accuracy of the final job sheet.
