The Paper Airplane Simulation was developed to help hourly and salaried employees compare the results when using a traditional versus a self-managed work group manufacturing approach. The simulation involves the production of colored paper airplanes, a process which models how greater productivity and quality can be achieved using a self-managed work group approach. While the simulation was developed for use in a manufacturing setting, it has also been successfully adapted to other work settings where the work has a distinct systems flow.
