To help prepare new hires for the rigors and cadence of working on the actual assembly line, without slowing it down, the Flat Rock Assembly Plant introduced a simulated factory to provide hands-on training to these new employees. This type of real-world experience improves quality of manufacturing as well as the safety of the work environment.
Greg Hounshell, a trainer and chairman administrative assistant, spent the last three months training the 1,400 new employees and has a great appreciation for the new training tools: "What that (simulated assembly line) does is, instead of them walking in that door and never having been in this kind of atmosphere or never having assembled a vehicle, they get hands-on experience beforehand and then they know what it’s like so they are more comfortable," Hounshell said.
As you can see in this video, Electro-Matic Products 4U2See displays helped play a role in making this simulated factory a success. Video: http://ford.to/17Cctfr
