Chrysler Group doesn’t leave employee productivity, improving quality and safety or reducing manufacturing waste to chance. The rebounding automaker sends employees to school to learn how to master the three principles of what Chrysler calls World Class Manufacturing (WCM).

In its first year of operation, Chrysler’s WCM Academy trained 3,400 employees from North American plants in what it calls “WCM know-how.” Employees learn in both traditional classrooms and labs that emphasize hands-on, problem-solving exercises.

Michigan-based Chrysler’s employees, one exec has noted, understand that the company’s success depends on its use of the WCM principles. The company reports “measureable benefits” from the changes the academy’s graduates have made when they returned to their jobs.

Adopted from Fiat, which bought out Chrysler Group in 2009, the systematic WCM process engages employees as the driving force behind manufacturing improvements.

I own a Journey and I was also interviewed by Four Wheels with regard to matters which came out in maio/2.013, talking about the brakes of Journey and Freemont. At the time the article was published Chrysler had done according to me, they indenizaram me and even swapped my 2010 Journey by another 2.012/2.013, the crew convinced me that the problem was in the past. Today, the new Journey to 9000 K have been through two exchanges of various front discs and pads, the last disc replacement occurred only about 1,500 K apart from one another, sent to technical reports and all disapproved. In research on the internet and also through a friend, I located three accidents with fatal victim, only one has a complete expert points where the probable cause of the accident to cause the brakes. I’m amazed how things proceed in our Brazil, do not know if you remember the last problem involving Corolla, because the rugs grab the brake pedal, the manufacturer was prohibited from marketing the model until it could solve the problem, it was done and resolved, however, few people know that the first to go through this problem and embrace the cause was a renowned Mr, still do not know the name, but according to a friend he gave a lecture at a School of Belo Horizonte – MG and released the authorship of their participation in the suspension of the sale of the Corolla. Will we have to investigate whether it has a deputy that has a Jorney or Freemont, so we can be helped to solve this problem. I have been earnestly ask everyone, send this story to as many people, you would be helping save lives and preventing the distribution of junk in our Brazil. The Brazilian people are already very painful to have to put up with such humiliation. Thank you and tell everyone.
