Diana Tremblay on "Global Manufacturing: Challenges, Opportunities and Impact for the U.S."

Diana Tremblay, Global Chief Manufacturing Officer, General Motors

Keynote speaker at MIT LGO conference on "The Future of Manufacturing in the U.S." (May 8, 2012)

Within the context of an intensely competitive auto industry and General Motors’ turnaround, this presentation addresses what it takes to win in the global marketplace. The discussion highlights U.S. manufacturing fundamentals for success including capacity planning, flexibility, quality, supplier relationships, and people engagement. These topics and more come to life through a case study featuring GM's Lake Orion Assembly Plant which produces two of the company's hot new small cars—the Chevrolet Sonic and Buick Verano.
