Form 6 IB students enjoyed an informative trip to the BMW Mini production plant at Cowley, near Oxford.
Teacher of Business, Ms Sophie Clarke, tells us more:-
“It was great to see the production concepts we have been learning about in action. We learned that mass customisation is a key feature at the plant and tried but failed to find two Minis that were identical. Not only this, but the pupils saw the raft of quality checks that every single Mini is put through. ‘Just in time and just in sequence’ stock management was also demonstrated and we all liked the autonomous vehicles delivering dashboards in the assembly plant. The amount of innovation being used here was incredible.”
