map network drives based on group membership powershell

Currently our uses get their network drives mapped depending on what active directory OU they are in ( people in the sales OU get mapped to the sales drive etc... ) . Because  a lot of our users need to access drives from other departments we end up going and mapping the drive manually for them. I was wondering if its possible to write a loggon script in powershell that will map the drives according to what group membership they have. Please consider that we have about 19 different 'drives' and as many group memberships. Would this approach make sense and is it something too complicated that isnt probably worth my time looking in too?

Make a unique script for everyone and include this code in it, repeat it for each group & drive you want to setup.
Users will only connect the drives affected to the group(s) they belong to.
