First Excursion to PSA Peugeot Citroen in Trnava and Sluzba VD in Nitra

After first semester of the Professional MBA Automotive Industry Program the first excursion to PSA Peugeot Citroen in Trnava and Sluzba VD in Nitra (a tier 2 supplier) took place in order to see how the knowledge they have already acquired is put into practice.

At the PSA Peugeot Citroen Trnava the managing director Jean Mouro introduced the company. Because Central Eastern Europe is a key area of development for PSA and also a growing market of potential customer in 2003 PSA Peugeot Citroen decided to locate the manufacturing center in Slovakia. In this factory the Peugeot 207 and C3 Picasso are produced. PSA Peugeot Citroen is a leading manufacturer of low emission cars. In order to avoid the defects they apply the ANDON system and have very strict quality management system. If a defect is detected, two reasons will be asked, why the defect is not detected and why the defect is created. Also the production cost of a car depends on the logistics. Therefore this company introduced the small parcel system to bring the right material in right time. The tour went through the production facilites, like stamping plant, welding shop, and final assembly line. The participants can get an impression about the modern car production. 

After the visit at PSA Peugeot Citroen Trnava the excursion was continued to a Tier 2 supplier for automotive industry in Nitra. This company is producing car electronics, like the fuse box, lights relays, circuit board etc.  

In a 300 years old historic castle Mojmirovce a review meeting was held to evaluate the excursion.
