Abstract

The purpose of this MQP was to design a public education system using manufacturing and industrial engineering principles. Using axiomatic design, a design was proposed that prepares students to attend high school at their own individual learning rates, while controlling the cost to operate the system. Through a financial analysis and a design matrix analysis, the proposed design of public education was shown to be cost controllable flexible for students completing their course work in preparation for high school.
