This paper describes the process of creating a learning factory based on an assembly line of roller skis used in order to enhance students’ practical and theoretical knowledge on topics of kaizen, waste types, efficiency, push/pull production systems. In addition to this, it gives suggestions/guidelines for creation of similar activities. It also includes description of learning outcomes received as a result of taking part in the activity. Literature review and group interviews were used to conduct the study and evaluate developed educational activity. Practical case study approach was also applied. The study has shown that application of learning factories, experience based learning, game based learning and serious games leads to enhancement of learning experience gained during educational activities.
