Ford Uses New Training Program for 1,400 New Employees
At the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, they have recently hired 1,400 new employees to keep up with the demand for the Ford Fusion. As production kicks into overdrive, the factory will need these 1,400 new hires to be ready on the assembly line - that's where the new training program, a simulated factory, comes into play.
Ford is using this new training program for all 1,400 new employees and it's a huge success. This simulated factory allows new hires to become quickly acquainted with how the assembly line works. Many new hires have never seen, let along stepped foot on, an assembly line in action. This simulation let's them experience the assembly line without actually affecting the build of the Ford vehicles. The factory simulation lasts for about 5 days, where each employee rotates between 10 different stations over the course of an 8-hour shift. Each station teaches them something new - whether it's working on brake lines, installing radiator hoses, or similar tasks, the employees get to experience it all.
