The Fiat WCM Development Center in Turin
is home to the culture of manufacturing and process quality
spread throughout the world through the WCM Academies
and the Manufacturing Training and Consulting Team
“Just as quality food requires
good ingredients, so is the production process
based on methodology to produce quality” H. Yamashina
Adopted by Fiat starting in 2005 with the aim of improving the production system by reducing waste, increasing productivity and improving working conditions, World Class Manufacturing is not a project but rather a constantly evolution program that grows and perfects itself using the contributions of all involved each day.
The WCM Development Center in Turin is the place where, working in close collaboration with the world’s top universities, new methodologies are developed and tested and training is provided to the individuals who then spread throughout all of the world’s various facilities.
The Manufacturing Training and Consulting Team is the group of “professional trainers” responsible for transferring WCM best practices and know-how WCM to all sectors of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and CNH Industrial around the world, as well as amongst the suppliers and external partners who belong to the WCM Association. The WCM Academies are the places where employees learn, according to an interactive approach, to use the tools and methods of World Class Manufacturing.
