Plant Tours

American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM), in conjunction with the Krannert Operations Club and DCMME, hosted a two-day plant trip at AAM’s Detroit Forge. On November 9, first year MBA student participants were given the opportunity to work in teams of 4-5 students to take a product that is a 25% loser and determine how to make it a product with positive returns through changes to any one or all of the following areas: product design, process, logistics, and financial (cost accounting). Students presented their solutions to the plant manager at the end of the day.
