This paper discusses improvements of an existing manual assembly line for roller skis when it was used as a template for a learning factory in the university. These improvements were in terms of lean philosophy and operations management, angled towards the application of "flexibility" and "learning factories" concepts. The article introduces list of suggestions that were built up with the help of several techniques presented in the paper. These techniques can bring significant improvements if wisely applied. A novel contribution of this article is combination of theoretical knowledge with application of it to the real life case used to make necessary enhancements to increase production capacity of the assembly line and involve it into the learning factory.
