Day 2 in Stuttgart

Today we finally were getting into the rythmn of the trip and furthering our knowledge of why we are here and what we are learning with the course. We did this by mainly going to the Porche Factory which was really interesting from a production line point of view. This was our first stop in automobile manufacturing and seeing how they assemeble some of the compartments. It was cool to see and understand what componets that they make themselves and what parts that they outsource their production to and how that they have different segments for each different component that all are syncronized. They really take the just in time philosophy to heart and there were multiple instances where these parts were being delivered literally to the second that they were needed at each stations which is something I thought is really insane the amount of prep work needs to be done. Overall it was really cool to see and to better understand how streamlined everything is with these processes.
