The vehicle was also given a zero-star rating for child protection, In October last year, the company was selling 2, Tatas a month, down from 10, in April "It took years for the number of cars on the planet to rise to a The Guardian's US editor John Mulholland urges you to show your. On the walls in every breakroom, the same "Zero Injuries" slogan was repeated this culture to reach zero injuries, so I asked Tom about his plant's safety record. "The closer we get to zero, the harder it becomes to show improvement. I'm not sure what else went wrong on Dad's car, but soon enough.
I told Tom what I've told thousands of safety leaders around the world for more than 30 years: Zero injuries is not your goal.
What did you say, Bill? Usually I get a degree of "shock and awe" when I say this to audiences. They're not quite sure I'm in my right mind. But I am completely serious. Zero injuries should not be your goal. Until leaders understand that there is a level of safety beyond zero, they will be stuck on the dreaded "hockey stick plateau" in their safety performance. Why is it that chasing Zero Injuries eventually produces this plateau?
To get at this answer, we need to look into the world of quality improvement. In particular, I want to consider the work of Dr. Edwards Deming, Statistical Process Control and general-all-around-quality guru. For those of you who don't know who Deming was, I'll give you the short version. Deming approached the U.
There was just one problem with Deming's idea: The big three automakers actually were delighted when something went wrong with a car, as long as it was out of warranty. If enough things failed on a car, then the customer would bring it to the dealership and trade it for a new one.
This strategy even had a name: About two years after Dad bought his new Caddy, right on schedule, those emblems would fall off. This "defect" provided a pretty big NIC for my Dad a negative, immediate, and certain consequence. I'm not sure what else went wrong on Dad's car, but soon enough, he headed for the dealership to swap for a new car a very big PIC for both him and me!
Strange as it may seem, this strategy of building poor quality into a product was a PFC positive, future, certain consequence for the major U.
Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Program
As you might imagine, Deming's words of wisdom fell on deaf ears at the Big 3. For the same sum, you could buy the vehicle they are sitting in 60 times over.
If the car proved a success in India, the industrialist Ratan Tata hinted at the time, a European and US version would be rolled out within a couple of years. But the results of the Ncap test, conducted last month at ADAC, the German equivalent of the AAAin Landsberg, Bavaria, raised serious questions about the risks posed by Tata's so-called frugal engineering approach to car safety.
The Tata Nano received a zero-star adult protection rating and failed to meet even the most basic UN safety requirements. After hitting a wall at 40mph, the vehicle pirouetted around its axis by about degrees and skidded a couple of metres to the left.
Its nose folded like a cardboard box, wrapping around the dummy in the driver's seat. The right-hand wheel burst through the floor of the vehicle, crushing the dummy's legs.
By the time the car had come to a standstill, the right wrist of the driving dummy was protruding from the burst intersection between the windscreen and side windows. The plant's full capacity will allow us to producevehicles per year. From the initial stage of the full-scale production process, there will be Russian components in assembled products, including stamped parts, bumpers, wheels and tires, seats, dash-boards, etc.

A further increase in the production capacity of PCMA Rus and a higher level of the local procurement rate will significantly contribute to the development of the auto components industry in Russia.
At present the suppliers of components for the plant include both well-known international companies which use their own advanced technologies and production experience when establishing production facilities in Russia, and the best Russian suppliers.

And six new models introduced in the market this year make a good base for further development. The current generation Outlander is the best-selling model among Mitsubishi's model range in Russia, and Mitsubishi Motors is confident the greatly improved next-generation model will continue to earn high praise from the Russian market.
