Chrysler Group dedicated a new World Class Manufacturing Academy at the UAW-Chrysler Technology Training Center in Warren, Mich., on Jan. 24. The group's Senior Vice President of Manufacturing and WCM Scott Garberding said during the dedication that WCM "is not a 'flavor of the month,' it's the only way we do business," according to a blog post the next day by Mike Driehorst.

He noted that since the 25,000-square-foot academy began as a pilot phase last year, more than 320 students have attended more than 30 sessions there. It has a staff of four full-time trainers and 12 associate trainers who as called in as needed, and all of them previously worked in Chrysler manufacturing, Driehorst wrote.
