Ashley Fournier-August 2, 2011 3:53 PM – How can you improve quality while also cutting costs? One of the ways Chrysler Group is working on that is by launching a pilot program to install World Class Manufacturing principles at plants run by our parts suppliers.

Ashley Fourier caught up with Dan Knott, Senior Vice President Purchasing and Supplier Quality, just before he told auto industry insiders about it at the annual Management Briefing Seminars in Traverse City, MI.

Information has been buzzing that a new 8-speed automatic transmission is in the works for Chrysler Group LLC and it is time to get the low down on how this new addition could affect needs from suppliers, availability of parts, and the ability to comply with the new fuel economy rules recently adopted.

We spoke with Dan Knott, Senior Vice President, Purchasing and Supplier Quality, Chrysler Group LLC to find out his thoughts on the subject matter. When we asked Mr. Knott “What will be the challenges for suppliers to provide the parts and components to comply with the new fuel economy rules and produce the 8 speed automatic transmission?”, here’s what he had to say…

June 5, 2011 8:01 PM-Sunday night, during the NBA Championship, Dr. Dre appeared in the commercial for the Beats™ by Dr. Dre™ sound system featured in the all-new 2012 Chrysler 300S.

In the Chrysler 300 commercial, “Good Things,” Dr. Dre is seen driving through the streets of Los Angeles in a Beats by Dr. Dre equipped 2012 Chrysler 300. As a voice over explains that “good things” don’t necessarily come to those who wait, but instead to those who work to make it happen.

As he drives through the streets, people respond to the music pouring out of his car. Eventually Dr. Dre reaches his destination, a hip-hop club, where he exits the vehicle and delivers a line reminiscent of the one delivered in the Chrysler brand Super Bowl commercial, “Born of Fire,” but, this time, for a different audience, “This is L.A. and this is what we do.”

As a prolific and acclaimed artist, producer, label head and entrepreneur, Dr. Dre has revolutionized music throughout his career. His work as an artist includes some of the most influential and essential music in hip hop. He is also considered to be one of the greatest music producers of the past quarter century and has also discovered and nurtured incredible talent (Eminem, Snoop Dogg).

Currently, he is working to improve the quality of sound with his most recent venture, Beats by Dr. Dre, while he also finishes his long-awaited and much anticipated final solo album, Detox.
