Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

Well looks like there may just be a way to squeeze more vehicles out of JNAP after all.

More on this later this year.

We're running that schedule you posted right now, except you have the hours and days a bit screwed up. I work C-Crew.

A Crew, M-R 10hrs 6am-4:30pm
B Crew, W-S 10hrs 6pm-4:30am
C Crew, M-T 10hrs 6pm-4:30am, F-S 6am-4:30pm

I'm talking continuous 24/6or7 line running. They *can* do it but the bean counters are the problem. Windsor Assembly does 24 hours a day, no stops. Why can't we?

It's only 20 years old.

The reason why we cannot build more is BECAUSE of our work schedule.

Get rid of that, run the place 24/7, with some occasional downtime for maintenance, we can.

That was my concern with my previous posts.

I do wonder exactly what do they mean by "maintenance"?

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

Aside from plant maintenance on equipment every so often, why are the change jingle'n heel rockers not wanting to spend the bread (invest really is how I see it) to have the plant running 24/7? Seems like the JGC really has no limit at the moment. That golden time when everything that leaves the factory door is getting bought, so the more that goes out the door gets sold. That's what I thought every automaker dreams of, right? Of course, I would not want this at the expense of quality. Mine has been "bullet proof", so I will gladly pay what they are asking for JGC's, as even though they are expensive, I feel you get your moneys worth. That's a win-win for both consumer and manufacturer I would think.

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

Are the other plants in the Detroit area (Ford, GM) working at this pace also?

Or is this unique to Jeep/Chrysler?
