Not quite WK2 related but JEEP Wrangler related. Probably the process for the JK2 is not too different in number of steps and complexity. At any rate, it makes for a good bed time story.
Understanding the Automotive Supply Chain:
The Case for Chrysler’s Toledo Supplier Park and its Integrated Partners KTPO, Magna, and OMMC
The purpose of this document is to describe the supply chain that produces automobiles and light trucks from the perspective of the assembly plant, which controls the tempo of production and coordinates actions of the upstream supply chain beginning with tier one suppliers of chassis and auto bodies and the downstream distribution system that ends at the dealership. The automotive supply chain is a large, complex operation that requires sophisticated management techniques, substantial information technology expertise, and close coordination to reduce throughput time and eliminate non-value added activities. This document specifically examines the Jeep Wrangler which is produced at Chrysler’s Toledo Supplier Park.
