This paper describes the development of a case-behind problem solving exercise that emphasizes the managerial and the engineering aspects of a real life project. Using the real life example of a quality initiative project that was completed at a laundry detergent plant of a international company, a series of modular exercises have been developed on topics such as organizational structure, process capability, six sigma, and Taguchi methods. The exercise modules have been developed by referring to the Bloom’s six levels of cognitive learning process. This paper provides some of the highlights of the exercise development process that may be useful to educators interested in developing their own case study-based exercises or adapting the available ones to suit their needs.
