Warren Truck Assembly Plant Gets Redesign

 auto assembly plantThanks to a 52-month sales streak for the Ram 1500, Chrysler Group’s Michigan-based Warren Truck Assembly Plant just underwent a major face lift.  Details on the redesign were release on September 25th, and according to the report, the new look will allow the plant to manufacture an additional 100 vehicles per day taking their yearly production total to over 38,565 trucks. According to Curt Towne, Warren Truck Assembly Plant Manager, “Building back-to-back Motor Trend Truck of the Year winners is something that has never been done before and it’s something we take great pride in.  So, as we approached this opportunity to rethink our processes, we wanted to make sure we kept our focus on the customer and doing things that would continue to improve the quality of the vehicle we deliver. I think this team accomplished that task.”

Starting at the end of 2013, the 76-year-old plant began to see changes that then continued trough this past August.  During this time, the most dramatic changes were made to the assembly line, but changes came for the entire plant including color booth improvements in the paint shop and body shop automation changes.

All of these improvements were made possible thanks to the introduction of the Work Place Integration Process or WPI, along with the integration of the World Class Manufacturing or WCM methodology.  The WPI process allowed for the review of every workstation operation with the WCM methodology in place.  This combination of best practices with a focus on safety, quality, and logistics are what have allowed the plant to up it’s production in such a way to meet demand for the 1500.
