Implementation of Ludic Activities as a Complementary Methodological Tool in the Teaching of the Traditional and the TOC Production Methods for Multitask Environments' Management. Ing. Univ.

The purpose of this study is to design and implement a play activity which simulates a multi-project production system through both the traditional and the TOC production methods in order to manage multitasking environments in the Industrial Engineering Program at Cordoba University. The study also intends to determine the impact of play activity tools on students' academic performance concerning the topic stated above. A quasi-experimental design with pretest, post-test and control group was used. The most important conclusion is that the tools mentioned have a positive effect on academic performance, since the experiment group performed better than the control group.
