Strategy Games Applied to the Teaching of Plant Engineering
The strategy games have been traditionally applied in the teaching of subjects related with “decisions making”, principally in the university studies related with the company. Nevertheless, the potential of this methodology makes also applicable to studies that lead to applicable practices in companies or factories, like happens with the technical educations. So, the present paper shows the methodology applied in the teaching of “Engineering Plant”, inside the Official Master of Manufacturing Engineering in the University of Cadiz, circumscribing it in a context of a material forming machine shop by chip removal. During the experience, distributions by process and by product have been simulated, determining the fictitious domain to pass from one to another. This was preceded by the determination of the. Finally, the discussion has driven to emphasize the importance of the reduction of dead-times due to the movements.
