Mr. Hearn's Transportation SHSM students participated in a tour of Canada's first Japanese automobile manufacturing company located in Alliston. This amazing reach ahead activity offered the students a first-hand look at one of the world's most efficient and environmentally friendly automotive manufacturing facilities. The students visited plant #1 (the Civic line) and witnessed all the different trades and skills required to manufacture this automobile. They were exposed to the importance of logistics and the precision of the assembly process. They learned about just-in time production and time and motion studies. The students watched as one car every 62 seconds rolled off the line.
This was truly an eye opening experience for our students.
Well done Mr. Hearn and thanks to your SHSM program for offering this great experience to our students.
