Abstract


The use of experiential learning activities has now spread as a tool to support the teaching of production engineering. This article aims to discuss this reality and this need, presenting as a proposal a practical activity of design, construction, and execution of manufacturing cells. From this, it was proposed to the participants involved to create and modify a simulated factory environment, through the knowledge acquired during the cellular manufacturing course. Several topics related to Production Engineering were approached, such as: manufacturing cells, takt time, process standardization, lean manufacturing and waste disposal. As a result, it was possible to notice, among several aspects, significant improvement in the understanding and assimilation of the theoretical concepts by the participants; with the practice of the simulation it is possible to demonstrate and experience possible cases and difficulties that they will face daily in the factory environment.

A utilização atividades de aprendizagem experiencial têm se difundido atualmente como uma ferramenta de apoio ao ensino de engenharia de produção. O presente artigo visa discutir sobre essa realidade e esta necessidade, apresentando como proposta uma atividade prática de projeto, construção e execução de células de manufatura. A partir disso foi proposto aos participantes envolvidos a criar e modificar um ambiente fabril simulado, por meio dos conhecimentos adquiridos no decorrer da disciplina de manufatura celular. Foram abordados diversos tópicos relativos à Engenharia de Produção, como: células de manufatura, takt time, padronização de processos, lean manufacturing e eliminação de desperdícios. Como resultado foi possível notar, dentre diversos aspectos, a significativa melhoria na compreensão e assimilação dos conceitos teóricos por parte dos participantes, com a prática da simulação é possível demonstrar e vivenciar possíveis casos e dificuldades que enfrentarão no dia a dia dentro do ambiente fabril.
