This paper outlines a project designed to improve efficiency and to reduce waste at the Detroit axle plant of the DaimlerChrysler plant. While the plant is, in many ways, a well-run one, it could be improved in the areas both of savings of scrap and of improving the product. The paper recommends that the plant be improved along both of these vectors in a move toward a pull-through system, which is a characteristic of a management style known as the Rabbit Chase system.
