An “in-basket” exercise decision-making in shape, be used with Nuclear Tube Assembly Room (A) (Condensed). The purpose is to provide students with multiple problems that require immediate analysis arrival in some decisions and planning how to implement these decisions pose. Includes two exhibits: 1) a process engineering proposal recommending several changes to an assembly operation, and 2) a personal note describes a conflict that erupted between the supervisors and process engineers regarding the proposal. Students should assess the likely impact of the proposed changes to the Division of Social System, productivity and satisfaction, and determine what changes are important, which have negative effects, and how these changes are desirable to implement. The student is placed in the conflict between the two main actors with the problem of diagnosis and successful intervention. The material is relevant to the issues of group behavior, inter-departmental conflict, interpersonal conflict, and action planning and implementation.
