The content included in the Cameron Balloon Factory is excellent and would be am useful interactive learning tool for students enrolled in "Production and Operations Management" courses. As an Instructor, this site would be an excellent supplemental for enhancing the learning objectives and improving students outcomes for aforementioned course. Using the virtual factory layout and the photographic guided tour of the factory would allow students to obtain a better understanding of different functions of supply chain and operations management. Moreover, there is an assessment option for instructors to test students. The site is easy to navigate and content is relevant to specific areas of management such as accounting, operations, and marketing.

This is an excellent resource that can be taught in a variety of business classes. The balloon factory offers a product that would be very interesting to students. They are able to take a virtual tour of the factory and review several different departments within the company. The creators must have spent a lot of time in putting this resource together, as it seems very thorough. Students can explore the site and see how the different departments relate to each other. There are assignments and work sheets in each of the parts of the material.

I have been in manufacturing and procurement for 20 years and I must say this module would be great for any Operations in Business student, or any employee in a trainee management position for a manufacturing or resource company. May even be beneficial to employees on a manufacturing or assembly floor, that know a little about business
and want to increase their knowledge and perhaps try advancement in the business with additional training.
Very understanding for 1st users to this web site module.
Gives an overall view of what departments actually make up a manufacturing company from procurement, processes in manufacturing, human resources and many other areas.
