A waterspider team naturally formed to stock the workstations of the three assembly lines. This was a critical function to the success of the work.
The students were formed into 3 teams to discuss what a "quality" job was and various approaches to assemblying the bag. Group 1 progressively stacked the materials and then inserted into the bag. Group2 moved the bag through the work stations and inserted items one at a time. Group 3 flowed people through the workstations, each loading a full bag. Massive learning potential created!
