Touring NUMMI on Friday

I’m getting a chance to tour the NUMMI plant in Fremont CA, the joint venture between Toyota and General Motors. I’m very excited about it and will post some thoughts over the weekend. Anybody already been there and have perspectives on the plant?

    I haven’t made it there myself yet, but I can’t wait to hear some of your direct observations. I would be particularly intrested in hearing about how maintenance areas are organized. How are maintenance teams organized and aligned? What do the layouts of maintenance areas look like? Are spares stored at point of use with visual controls in place?
