Garage simulation is dedicated for teachers of entrepreneurship and doing business esp. in vocational secondary schools with mechanical professions. Simulations allow students to learn the secrets of running a garage. Every student plays a role of an entrepreneur, owner of a garage, and makes decisions that all owners struggle with in everyday life. The fact that students compete with the companies run by their classmates is an extra motivation. In the simulation, students analyse the market to design an offer that will meet the needs of the customers, monitor competitors’ activity and manage their garages not only to be profitable but also keep high quality of their services, and satisfaction of both customers and employees.
The simulation enables training of skills such as entrepreneurship, group work, analytical thinking, making decisions under time pressure etc.
Scope of decisions:
Design the offer of the garage
Equip the garage with the necessary machines
Choose the supplier of the parts
Hire workers & set their salary
