^ eye-opener imho
I've 'always' wondered why Fomoco plants never seemed anywhere near as "flexible" as the definition I learned from articles about the imports*.
From what I read-into this article, it's because Fomoco doesn't mean the same thing AT ALL when it says "flexible" ... let me know if you agree:
, what Fomoco means is that they will be able to change the plant
over to a new model fairly
(and some other quick-change stuff***)
NOT that different platforms will be concurrently run down the same assembly line*.
** "re-tooling" in weeks instead of a year or large fraction of a year
*** ie the EXISTING drivetrains %'s, the EXISTING models %'s
I really wonder if the new Thai plant will JUST be "flexible" on One platform at a time
be able to handle more than one platform CONCURRENTLY?
