The General Motors Company or (GMC or GM) as it is more commonly known, it the world's largest automobile manufacturing company. It was founded in the United States in 1908 and today manufactures GM parts and GM vehicles under a number of brands globally. Its founder, William Durant began to assemble a group of companies intended to build a range of GM parts and cars in every style and price group. It was primarily because of his foresight that General Motors grew to be the complex and highly successful automobile and GM parts manufacturer that it is today. GM continues to bring together the best, most competitive manufacturing practices from around the world and leveraging what it has learned as it moves to a common global manufacturing system for all of its new plants and existing facilities. With each new plant or renovation of a current plant, it is further refined and implemented with regional variation, based on the individual plant environment, supplier capability, vehicle architecture and cultural factors.
GM manufactures GM parts and automobiles under a unique process they call the GM Global Manufacturing System, it is an important building block of an integrated strategy to develop GM parts and products to satisfy customers in markets around the world. Plants and processes are designed to efficiently manufacture GM parts while providing support for the operators and teams on the plant floor, so they can efficiently build great vehicles that provide our customers with higher quality, value and responsiveness.
GM parts and performance products are factory-developed and engineered, and tested on the world's greatest racetracks. Because they are built by strict standards GM parts are the perfect match for your GMC vehicle. Manufacturing GM parts for performance is improved through the consistent adoption of five principals; people involvement, standardization, built in quality, short lead time and continuous improvement. The principals are interrelated and implemented as a complete system to ensure that each GM part is built with the highest standards of quality.
The use of technology to increase efficiency plays an ever increasing role and has recently been used to cut the waste out of the manufacturing process. To help ensure that equipment and processes support operators GM uses 3-D math modeling to create a "virtual factory" that helps planners integrate equipment, tools, fixtures and machinery that will be used in the plant to manufacture GM parts. GM aims to maximize performance in the areas of people systems, safety, quality, customer responsiveness and cost in the production of GM parts.
Due to the easy accessibility of GM parts, not only are they competitively priced, but GM parts make it easier and more convenient for owners to maintain their vehicles.
