Study visit for volunteer mentors at World Class Manufacturing academy by FCA in Torino
19 June 2018
On 19th June 2018 EWE volunteer mentors were offered a presentation on WCM that FCA plants and main suppliers implement. World Class Manufacturing (WCM) is a structured, rigorous and integrated production methodology adopted at FCA plants worldwide, which involves the entire organization, from safety to environment, maintenance, logistics and quality. The primary objective of WCM is continuous improvement in all areas of production in order to guarantee the quality of the final product and meet customer expectations. Projects developed under the WCM methodology – which rely on a high level of employee involvement – target the elimination of all forms of waste and loss with the ultimate objective of achieving zero accidents, zero waste, zero breakdowns and zero inventory.
In the afternoon of 19th June 20 mentors could learn more and visit FCA academy. The aim of the initiative was of raising awareness that in some cases this methodology can be useful and effective for consolidating company performances.
The training offer was very successful : as a matter of fact UIT gathered more expressions of interest than the nr of people allowed!
