Ford Will Train New Employees With Simulated Factory

Ford Will Train New Employees With Simulated Factory
BRIGHTON, Mich. - The Ford Motor Company's Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Flat Rock, Michigan is about to change the way new employees are trained. The first plant in Michigan to do so, the Flat Rock Assembly Plant and Ford will train new employees with a simulated factory. This specific plant is in charge of producing the Ford Fusion, a vehicle so in demand that the plant has recently had to hire a large amount of Michigan community members.

These new hires will learn how to perform on the line and more, all from a simulated factory. This simulation will teach them everything from what gloves to wear, to tasks they will be asked to perform on the line, to fixing an alternator on an engine.

The simulation will have 10 stations which factory workers will rotate to every 40 minutes. Ford has announced that it will be standard to train new employees with the simulated factory, from here on out.
