Site Tour - Supply Chain Systems and Material Management at Holden

Supply Chain Systems and Plant Tour

Hosted By:
GM HoldenSIRF Roundtables is proud to present this opportunity to visit the GM Holden Elizabeth Assembly Plant.

While there is a lot to see at the Holden plant, our tour and most of our discussion will focus on the supply chain systems used at this plant, and they are broad, extensive, and executed extremely well. The work environment at Holden is complex: mixed model production and options on vehicles mean that each car has a different set of parts going into it, but they have a fixed length for the assembly line. This means that to maintain production they have to deliver a very high mix of parts, right to the point of assembly.

Despite that and the imminent closure of the plant, the people at Holden have shown incredible tenacity and leadership, and are aiming their sites on being the highest performing assembly plant in GM's fleet - and they probably will make it!


During this event we will have:
  • A presentation about theory / journey of creating the material delivery system at Holden
  • A site tour focused on following the parts from entry/creation until they reach the car
  • A discussion about the system and any questions related to it or the GMS system in general
