Chrysler Group employees who can’t make the trip to the auto manufacturer’s 25,000-square-foot Warren, Mich., training center can attend remotely via a new mobile classroom.
The car giant’s two-year-old World Class Manufacturing Academy, which trained more than 3,400 workers in its first year, is taking its classes to Chrysler factories in a repurposed former motorsports trailer. Employees’ at the organization’s four Kokomo, Ind., plants became the project’s first remote students in November.
The curriculum focuses on reducing waste, increasing productivity and improving quality and safety.
While the mobile unit is at a plant, employee-students learn through iPads, smart TVs and traveling instructors.
