To be successful in manufacturing, a business must first produce a product that meets a consumer demand. Quality control, profit margins and effective marketing will all play a role in determining how successful the enterprise becomes.

Each factory commences with one employee team on single shifts, working under standard management systems.
The business must run at a profit. Participants need to make decisions based on revenues and the cost of production.
