Skills Gap Resources – Industrial flowline production

Ages: 11-14 years
First published 2015

This is an industrial-referenced project enabling students to understand how to apply a flowline production process in manufacturing. These teaching resources were created from the pilot project delivered to Y10 BTEC Engineering students at Ysgol Clywedog and supported by Airbus but are readily adaptable to suit KS3 and other year groups.

This project focuses upon production processes used in industry and particularly the Airbus flowline production. It provides the students with a practical approach to two different types of production methods, which are then compared in relation to quality in production, production rates, and a lean approach to manufacturing.

Key skills: Production approaches; lean manufacturing; working as a team.

The project overview document gives an outline of the whole project and brief detail of the supporting resources available to help deliver each lesson. There is a total of six learning activities, representing approximately 10 hours teaching.

  • Module 1. Design and manufacture an aircraft
  • Module 2. Production processes
  • Module 3. The flowline production approach
  • Module 4. The product
  • Module 5. Designing a flowline for the lamp
  • Module 6. The learning journey

These resources were developed in 2015 as part of the Skills Gap programme, linking schools with industry, to enhance Design and Technology teachers’ technical skills and knowledge to deliver an exciting, relevant and up-to-date curriculum.
