Reflecting the reality of today’s technology-driven workplace, Mean Jeans Manufacturing Co. is a work-flow simulation based on the operations of an imaginary, small business community. Mean Jeans produces denim products and is surrounded by 15 other businesses (5 sole proprietorships, 2 partnerships, 1 federal agency, and 7 corporations). Students act as managers of these various businesses, all of which interact with Mean Jeans, and they learn by being responsible for the daily operations. Mean Jeans has been completely reconfigured to provide ease of use and include current business technology!
