    Yo guys, i have a question, and i think that you can help, i am doing an homework for school and i have the question:
    - If i had one company that manufactures two kinds of products, one size 10 cm and the other 12 cm, so i am willing to avoid mix-up between them, what can i do?? They have to be white, and there is no way to change their size.

    Do you mean during the manufacturing stages?

    I guess some sort of machine that recognizes size and shape and sorts it.

    Many places. O_O MemeLove: 4/5
    An expensive, yet effective way to avoid mix-ups between the two products would be to have two separate factories. One product will be made in one factory, while the other product will be made in the other factory. There would be a next-to zero chance the two products would be mixed up then, right?

    Maybe you should tell us the whole problem? I don't feel like you're giving us all the information needed to make an accurate answer. [​IMG]

    This.
    Or if they're made in the same factory, have some sort of organized manufacturing process. Example- 10cm is made and is carried to one end of the factory, next a 12cm is made and is carried to the other end, again with 10, again with 12, etc. Just totally thinking this up on the spot.

    Yet the question is still... kind of vague. Or so it seems.
