Plant Tours

Plant Trip: American Axle & Manufacturing (Fall)

A trip to American Axle’s Three Rivers plant in Michigan included a tour of the shop floors of both the prop shaft and axle sections of the plant and an introduction to the manufacturing process of both products. Participants also worked on actual manufacturing problems. They were given a large amount of data regarding two current improvement projects – both related to bottlenecks in different lines – and were given two hours to come up with suggestions that were then presented to the AAM Team.
